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-BritishHipHop

London journalist Taytula Burke jumped on Skype recently to speak with west coast hip hop group Horseshoe Gang in the lead up to the release of their new album “Anti-Trap Music” out on April 29th through Seven 13 Music & Ent.

As part of a broader feature piece for the UK online BritishHipHop.com, the interview focused on the meaning behind the title and the wider issue of lyricial content prevelant in various forms of the genre.

As in previous interviews, the group acknowledge the role artists such as Kendrick Lamar and J Cole have played in bringing the art of lyricism back to the table, but here again explain that one or two individuals cannot do that, or represent a movement alone. The inference being greater unity between like minded artists to help “clean up the industry” on a far larger scale

It’s an ongoing debate in the world of hip hop generally, but what’s certainly true is that the various evolutions have created very specific markets, often territory to territory. Apples & oranges.
