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

Recently, west coast hip hop group Horseshoe Gang chopped it up with Joe Blakk & Mr Caypre on High End Radio which broadcasts through the Siccness Radio network.

The crew spoke about the COB (Circle of Bosses) movement started by their elder brother KXNG Crooked before addressing their tag as “the new saviours of the west coast” as part of the discussion on the loss of real lyricism in hip hop, and those artists who are bringing it back on the agenda.

The show’s hosts addressed the track “Why Men Cheat” from the group’s debut album “Gangsta MC” and their reputation over the years of talking about all forms of real life issues, before the subject moved to cyphers.

When asked whether they thought Fetty Wap, Young Thug, Future and Rich Homie Quan could go toe to toe in a cypher, Horseshoe Gang threw the doors open and laid down a challenge to allcomers to take ’em on before finishing the interview with Julius launching into a fierce 16 bar freestyle

The full interview was uploaded to the official Siccness Youtube Channel

ATM-7thBoro

West Coast hiphop crew Horseshoe Gang sat down with Scyren Joseph from online publication 7th Boro recently in the build up towards the release of their fourth studio album “Anti-Trap Music” on April 29th – available to pre-order on iTunes HERE

In another typically frank and in-depth interview, the group chopped it up about the new album and how it compares to their considerable back catalogue including mixatpes and EP’s, the automatic association of their name with their elder brother KXNG Crooked while being dubbed “The Left Coast Slaughterhouse”, and how with them being brothers, the family dynamic affects the creative process.

The discussion moves on to the underlying messages within the new album with much of it addressing current hip hop, before sedgewaying into the subject of the culture’s position within today’s mainstream society and whether independents feel they must compete against, or utilise a more populist approach.

All this & more can be read in the full feature HERE

Another article about the release just published is this new review by new US online “Sam the Author” run by freelance journalist and author Samuel Odunsi Jr who has written previously for titles such as Dead End Hip Hop.

Only up & running for a couple of months, Sam’s focus is on music and film reviews

Quoted from the review, “The album is relentless with lyricism and interesting production choices that range from the old school to the futuristic.“, you can read his full appraisal HERE

Just last week the group released their third official single from the album, “Shoe-icide Squad”, which addresses the familiar issues of #BlackLivesMatter with their trademark lyrical firepower backed by a bangin G Funk beat courtesy of Tabu (Kendrick Lamar, Aftermath). Check out the stream

West coast crew Horseshoe Gang are back with a new single, the third taken from their album “Anti-Trap Music” which releases on April 29th on Seven 13 Music & Entertainment.

In “Shoe-icide Squad” these lyrical marksmen use rhymes like bullets to address the increased number of young black men killed at the hands of the police. The evident rage in the delivery is understandable where black lives matter, and the neck breaking beat provided by Tabu (Kedrick Lamar, Aftermath) is the perfect backdrop with its classic G-Funk flavour.

CHECK THE STREAM

The album can now be pre-ordered in two formats. CD versions including signed copies with further merchandise are available HERE

It can also be pre-ordered from iTunes where the singles Poverty Slogans, Crooked I Robot and Shoe-icide Squad are available to buy now. Go direct to the store HERE
