State Cap. mix tape release
You can’t go wrong with lines like: “I slowed it down like Cuba Gooding did in Radio, fam,” but State Cap.’s latest mix tape Where is State Cap.? isn’t all fun and games; there’s poetic insight, there’s struggle and there’s serious passion for life and the culture it holds.
DJ Flow (who mixed the living shit out of this CD) shows a flair for old-school hip-hop arrangement and a knack for creating a seamless journey from point A to point B. And what a journey it is; guided by emcees Bosse, A.V., C Plus and Hanlin, the listener learns a lot in 22 songs about this personality-driven group.
There are no run-of-the mill raps nor are there dragging beats on this effort; plus, Where is State Cap.? introduces us to Uptown Swuite (on “In Due Time”), an emcee with a clean flow that reeks of stardom. Again, the Neighborhood Watch crew shows us who’s putting in work for the city’s growing hip-hop résumé.
