ATM-RhymeJunkieInterview

Fair to say that 2016 will have proven to be a busy year for Long Beach hip hop crew Horseshoe Gang.

They released their new album “Anti-Trap Music” in April, the album immediately entering iTunes charts’ Top 50 in 15 countries with Amazon’s initial CD stock sold out in a day.

Their elder brother KXNG Crooked (aka Crooked I) had been developing a new talent show “One Shot” which is now due for first broadcast this month with the group featuring as judges, and in September a second limited edition album “4 Brothers” will be released, again through Seven 13 Entertainment.

Peter Johnstone from US online magazine Rhyme Junkie caught up with them recently to discuss their experience of the music industry, their views on trap music, the different lyrical styles each member brings to the group, the political content of tracks such as “Shoe-icide Squad” and what people can expect from “4 Brothers”.

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

ATM-MicrophoneMastersDubCNN

Microphone Masters Radio is broadcast in stream / podcast format every Wednesday through the DubCnn network.

Last week, the show’s host J-Luv sat down with Julius, Demetrius, Kenny & Dice from Horseshoe Gang to discuss their new album “Anti-Trap Music” which releases on April 29th through Seven 13 Music & Entertainment.

During the interview, the group clarified their take on the trap music genre and the discussion progressed onto the issue of retaining lyrical integrity, and how remaining true to these ideals can be maintained using commercial productions.

They then moved on to the frustrations faced by many artists in the modern age, the prevelant expectation of multiple back to back releases. The oversaturation of the internet where quantity has replaced quality has become an issue in recent times, and has created an apparent obligation on artists to consistently produce new material and make available for free.

The interview wraps up with the group addressing the net grind / financial gain factor, the life sacrifices that have to be made to pursue a musical career and their call to radio stations to sit emerging and established artists side by side on the basis of quality and not budgets.

Interesting insight to which many will relate. The full feature was published on DubCnn where you can hear the full stream of the show which also includes tracks by E-40, Brotha Lynch Hung, J-Live, Grand Puba, Big Boi and more HERE
