In the lead up to the release of their album “Anti-Trap Music” on April 29th, Horseshoe Gang, sat down with west coast online magazine Streets Connect.
In one of their most in-depth interviews to date, the group spoke on a wide range of issues. They outlined the recording process and how they select the different styles of production, and the whole ethos behind the meaning of their album title. This leads them onto the wider subject of lyricism in hip hop, and the positive and negative influences these have depending on how imagery is portrayed per genre.
Their track “Shoe-icide Squad” has been much heralded as their version of NWA’s “Fuck the Police”, taking a stand against police brutality and protecting their community, and notably choosing to speak out on this when others have backed down. As explained in the feature this comes from the influence of listening to artists such as Rakim and moves the conversation forward to Tupac’s legacy, the long lasting effect it’s had on them, and the the west coast scene to this day.
The discussion moves on again to touch upon their well documented rap battle with Hopsin’s Funk Volume, their plans to release a comic book series and they also go into more detail about their fanbase overseas, notably in the UK and Europe. Currently sitting in iTunes Top 50 in 15 different countries would bear witness to that fact.
Very interesting insight into all of that & more which can be read in full HERE
The album “Anti-Trap Music” can be bought on iTunes with CD versions available from Amazon Check out the full album stream

West coast crew Horseshoe Gang released their new album “Anti-Trap Music” last Friday, April 29th, through Seven 13 Music & Entertainment.
Within the first hour of release, Amazon reported that they had sold out all CD stock…now replenished…and the album is a Top 50 seller on iTunes in 15 different countries. It’s a testament to the extent of the group’s international fanbase.
Among recent video and written reviews is this new one published today by French online Sagi Hip Hop
A 4 star review, a rough translation of their summary reads “No fillers, mammoth firecrackers, Horseshoe Gang keep the quality high and to the point over 11 tracks.” with extended sections of the article given over to the theme of the album title, specifically calling into question the lyrical content and influence that particular genre has on a younger generation. The album itself diversifies into a range of subject matter, real life issues, which in itself justifies the title.
The four brothers Julius, Kenny, Dice and Demetrius aren’t sitting on their hands. They just had their album launch party in LA earlier in the week, are still conducting interviews with international media and making arrangements to shoot some new videos.
They are also in the early stages of organizing some tour dates while putting some studio time aside to record new material, quite possibly a new album for later in the year.
Standard work ethic from a group who previously released 12 monthly mixtapes – keep up to date with them on TWITTER and FACEBOOK

Southern rapper & producer Ande Bishop releases his debut EP, entitled “Ocean$ – Extended Play” on 19th May.
The most recent signing to the ever expanding Seven 13 Entertainment, he’s being tipped by many as one of the hottest talents to emerge from the Atlanta area, due to his fresh sound and approach which is down in no small way to the variety of influences he grew up with.
On the production front he started by mixing classic soul and r&b with some Southern flavours, and growing up listening to classic hip hop artists Tupac and Blu with those closer to home such as T.I. has developed a style which is already drawing some early comparisons to Outkast and Isaiah Rashad.
French online “Les Petites Chroniques”, translated as “the little reviews” produce a series of snapshot summaries of various releases, and have just published this one for Ande’s new EP. The summary “Cet EP est parfiat pour l’apero” reflects that the EP is perfect for the “Apero” tradition of a few summer drinks in the early evening due to it’s overall chilled sound.
