Shoe-icideHipHopDX

Long Beach crew Horseshoe Gang released their album “Anti-Trap Music” on April 29th, and within a week it entered the top 50 of iTunes’ charts in 15 countries.

From it was the single “Shoe-icide Squad”, the group’s savage verbal attack on police brutality against the black community, delivered with a ferocity that drew many to compare it to NWA’s “F*ck The Police”. The appropriately raucous beat is courtesy of Danish production duo Tabu (Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Tech N9ne)

With the recent events in Minnesota, Louisiana, Florida and now Canada taking place in the midst of political upheaval, the west coast rappers have put their full weight behind the Black Lives Matter movement by releasing this new official video, premiered by HIPHOP DX

HG11

Last week, Demetrius, Kenny and Julius from Horseshoe Gang dropped by the Inglewood studios of Homegrown Radio as guests of the HGR Live Show.

During the Long Beach group’s most in depth interview ever, they discussed a huge range of issues relating to the group directly and the wider world of hip hop and politics.

The interview began with the concept behind their album title “Anti-Trap Music” released earlier in April and their massive level of output over the years, including their Mixtape Monthly series which lasted a full year.

They explain this work ethic has its roots in a musical family background, and also explain their mother’s role in their education, the brothers never having attended public school and having often experienced homelessness.

They discuss last year’s rap battle with Funk Volume, provide an insight to their upcoming new album “4 Brothers”, and address the wider subject of why they haven’t stepped into the rap battle arena or pursued solo projects.

A debate follows as to how rappers are rated, what defines a lyricist given the multitude of styles, and how aware a younger generation will be of anything not currently the staple diet of mainstream radio or clubland.

The conversation turns political, addressing recent high profile cases of police brutality and how the options available at the US elections might help, if at all.

With the interview drawing to a close, the studio addresses the recent VH1 Hip Hop Honors for Female Rappers before the group reveal they will appear as judges on a new tv talent show “One Shot” due to be shown on B.E.T. from August 23rd.

LISTEN BACK !

The group will be releasing a new video for “Shoe-icide Squad” – described as their version of NWA’s “Fuck the Police” – in the next few days. Connect with them on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram

CD1

Baltimore rapper M.I. and New Jersey producer DJ Cutt, aka Constant Deviants, released their fifth studio album “Omerta” digitally on June 28th through Six2Six Records.

It is being distributed worldwide on CD and vinyl formats by Fatbeats, and is due in stores from next week.

They have just released their third single from the album. “Reign Storms” was written in the aftermath of the death of Freddie Gray at the hands of Baltimore Police officers, all the more poignant now due to the well documented tragic events of recent weeks.

Quite clearly, black lives matter, as indeed do all lives.
