London journalist Taytula Burke jumped on Skype recently to speak with west coast hip hop group Horseshoe Gang in the lead up to the release of their new album “Anti-Trap Music” out on April 29th through Seven 13 Music & Ent.
As part of a broader feature piece for the UK online BritishHipHop.com, the interview focused on the meaning behind the title and the wider issue of lyricial content prevelant in various forms of the genre.
As in previous interviews, the group acknowledge the role artists such as Kendrick Lamar and J Cole have played in bringing the art of lyricism back to the table, but here again explain that one or two individuals cannot do that, or represent a movement alone. The inference being greater unity between like minded artists to help “clean up the industry” on a far larger scale
It’s an ongoing debate in the world of hip hop generally, but what’s certainly true is that the various evolutions have created very specific markets, often territory to territory. Apples & oranges.

Obviously now gearing up for this, their fourth studio album, the group are still conducting further interviews with local, national and international press & media, the results of which you will see shortly, and there is also tentative word of an album launch event – stay tuned.
Last week they released the single “Intro” featuring their older brother KXNG Crooked. It is available to buy from the album’s pre-order spot on iTunes HERE
