Quality Glitch Hop meets Quality Hip Hop: SPLATINUM vs. KING FANTASTIC

TITLE: Love for Those Hustlers EP
LABEL: Bass Drop Music | Street Ritual
FORMAT: Digital
RELEASE DATE: 05/15/2010

Track Listing:
1) Love for Those Hustlers
2) Sipping on That Sizzurp
3) My Posse is on Broadway
4) Know About the Dirty South
5) It?s Bigger Than Glitch Hop
6) Vadonna's Magina

Two great releases has just arrived to my dropbox. Both crews hailing from the sunny Cali, both offering super slick beat and sick rapping and madafucki**ganstashizzle. Both available totally FOR FREE!!!!

First of them, SPLATINUM is back with a 6-track devotional to the gangsters and the hustlers. The “hip hop obsessed” Seattle duo has been getting freaky with the samples and blessed it all up with their slippery signature frequency modulation swagger. Call in the mop boy for this one. Super sonic clean up in booth 3!
It's Bigger than Glitch Hop or Know about the Dirty South are my personal highlights but listen carefully to the entire release - it's classic (classy?) Glitch Hop with distorted, glitchy basslines and synth work, sick beat and fantastic acapellas! Highly recommended by Doktor Krank.

King Fantastic's debut album "Finger Snaps and Gun Claps" is the best Hip Hop album I've heard in a long long while. Super heavy-weight LA duo of Killer Reese One and Troublemaker present a "concise study in Westcoastsynthesizerbeachbumgangstermusic" :)) with ear-catching rhyming and super tight, stomping beat, it is a veeeeeeeeerrrrrrry serious head-nodding biznizn. My favorites tunez include: Lost Art of Killing, Stop Fucking Paying, D-boy Stance, On-q or Why?Where?What? but every single song on this absolutely fantastic record is a sure winner. I wish gansta rap sounded like that back in the days he he he. Don't even hestitate for a moment - cop this album FOR FREE from King Fantastic's site:
