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-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

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

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
