ATM-cover

West coast hip hop group Horseshoe Gang release their fourth official studio album “Anti-Trap Music” on Friday April 29th 2016. Available to buy on iTunes HERE and CD’s from the label HERE

As expected from the younger brothers of KXNG Crooked, it’s a showcase of superior rhymes and wordplay throughout addressing a diverse range of subjects. Targets in the sights of these lyrical marksmen are poverty and aspirations, police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement, and the pain incurred by the loss of those closest. They also provide a tribute to the legends of hip hop while pulling no punches with their take on the state of rap music today.

Their technical prowess combined with intelligent approach has gained much media attention, and seen them feature in a host of local, national and international publications in the past few months.

Production credits include Grammy Award winners Pitchshifters, KXNG Crooked and COB affiliates Jonathan Elkaer, DJ E.D.D.E.H. and Tabu
