As the year wraps up, the hip-hop continues coming out and this is easily one of the best tracks of 2012. It’s Reks with Lucky Dice offering up the superhyped “Heavy In The Winter”, preparing everyone for the cold temperatures. It was produced by Lion, and this one is sure to make fans quite warm until spring arrives again.
Anyway, Alterbeats have released The French Revolution, bringing on a wide range of MC’s to take their music and move it into new places. This includes help from… well, look at all of the people tagged for this review. Chief Kamachi, Murdoc, Bekay, Shabaam Sahdeeq, Reef The Lost Cauze, Willie Maze, Halfabrick, Estee Nack, Sadat X. That’s an incredible wealth of artists and artistry on this, and the exchange between each of them with one or another will make you want to buy, hear, and absorb for weeks, months, and years to come.
Is it angry now? Now, this is just what hip-hop is and always will be: a celebration of beats, rhymes & life, without fear.
Alterbeats have been making the beat junkie rounds for awhile, and now the French production collective are about to release an album of their wares, and this is a morsel of what’s on it: a track featuring Sadat X, A.G., and Lion of the group Bordeaux.
The full album, called The French Revolution, will be released on June 26th.
