Hands down. Stu Bangas is one of my favorite producers! He’s been giving us countless hit projects and never disappoints with the talent he lines up to compliment his potent production. He has kicked the decade off with stellar soundscape on this latest project Beats and Blood. There’s a slew of features from some of the illest rhymes sayers in the underground such as, Blacastan, Recognize Ali, Vic Spencer, Ty Farris, Nowaah The Flood, Verbal Kent, Celph Titled and many more!
The album has nine no nonsense bangers on it. My favorite joints are “Inherit the Earth”, “Keeping Time” and “Gideon”. The project has a certain “it” factor. You won’t skip any song. Each artist gives us lyrical stamina and electrifying performance over the hard drum kicks and epic production from Stu Bangas. The project soundscape is cohesive. The lyrical content is diverse and intriguing. The overall concept are art are right in line with Stu’s brand. Boom bap enthusiasts need to add this to their collection. Vinyls are available today. Check and Beats and Blood and brace yourself for a dope listening experience.
