In this new exclusive interview, Stanley Florence from west coast online Raw Hip Hop Headz spoke with Long Beach crew Horseshoe Gang in the lead up to the release of their fourth studio album “Anti-Trap Music” on April 29th 2016

The group who are all blood brothers begin by talking about how their’s was a musical household as their mother and aunt were singers signed to a label in the 70’s. Subsequently, they explain how their initial steps towards becoming rappers were taken under the tutelage of their elder brother KXNG Crooked when from as early an age as 5 years old they were given rhymes to learn.

Influenced by artists including NWA, Tupac, Rakim and Jay-Z they speak about the advantage of having a special chemistry given their background and their aim to put more substance back into hip hop lyricism.

While acknowledging the role Kendrick Lamar and J Cole have played in re-establishing the craft, and indeed some who have helped bring the west back into focus, they explain more needs to be done, movements created, established and underground artists working together in unity to finally tip the scales.

The interview is then wrapped up as they discuss their tour with KXNG Crooked and Rittz last year, their well documented rap battle with Hopsin’s Funk Volume and of course, the album “Anti-Trap Music”.

The album is available to pre-order in two formats, CD’s direct from Seven 13 Music & Ent HERE and on iTunes HERE

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.
