Billy Woods – U Boats Ft. Elucid (Busdriver & Aesop Rock)

Looking forward to Wood’s new album.
While we’re here, lets mention that in 2015 Armand Hammer >>>>>>>> Cannibal Ox. Woods and Elusive use the established legacy of streetwise avant garde NY rap as a starting point and then build and expand outward from it, while Can Ox struggle to even meet the benchmarks they set themselves with the Cold Vein.

Two very capable and very smart MCs with a lot on their mind. If you like rap that leans towards the aurally abstract and is packed with content that calls for some close listening and rumination, this is for you.

You can buy the album HERE.
Stream via Impose.

The Blockwoods (pun score 10000000) collaboration is looking better and better with every track. There is a good indepth feature about it posted today on Noisey, you should go read it because it already says pretty much everything I might have to say about this track and the album it comes from.
For more along similar lines, check out this Blockhead remix of a Cult Favorite track also featuring woods.

These days I don’t have much taste for the dissonant & paranoid side of the NY underground, I kinda OD’d on it back in the Def Jux glory days. But once in while some of it does catch my ear, like this track here. Billy Woods and Elucid are both undoubtedly talented rappers, but often choose production that’s too chaotic and abrasive for my liking (Elucid especially). Here it’s not too bad; the beat is drum heavy and chopped just right, metallic screeching is minimal and the Nina Simone sample is used much better than it was by those two famous rich dudes you might’ve heard about.
