STILL rhyming with power, truth, rhythm; still living it in the Big (Rotten) Apple, Beeks and Miggs of Bronx Slang keep the gems coming from street-level observations as they shape up for their album later this year? When? When?
Jeez, if only I could tell you – I don’t know myself; let’s at least be satisfied with the fact they’re tantalising us with nuggets like their latest drop, “Happens A Lot” – take a listen for y’self.
Over tough breakz the pair examine the rise, rise and fall of a hip hop career when a kid from the projects is dazzled by the flash, gets distracted, can’t produce the goods anymore – and are dropped as abruptly as they rose.
“Started from the bottom, straight to the top, back down to the bottom, it sure happens a lot”, they sing; “”Fast money, fast cars, yeah, the fast life,”, all nailed down by some widescreen boppin’ jazz, the old-skool Noo Yoik.
Oh, one thing we can reveal about the forthcoming album – it comes with UK production chops from Fake Blood and Jadell, so expect sonic excellence.
Bronx Slang’s “Happens A Lot” is out now on all digital streaming platforms via Fabyl.
