Happy Wu-Wednesday my friends. It’s the middle of the week and school is back in session for many. This has a literal and figurative meaning because today I am sharing with you all a super fresh LP from boom bap rap duo Tha Addicts titled “This Is For Us“. Tha Addicts consists of MC’s Menace and Bliz.Peep the video below to get acquainted.
Now if you have done yourself a disservice and just skipped the video and headed straight down to this part of the write up, scroll your lazy ass up and watch the video. The song in the video just so happens to be the title track off the project and it starts of the LP. Right away you’re experiencing hip hop in its essence. Graffiti, dope beats, sampling, scratching and two live MC’s rapping bars for days. The video is extra crispy and clean as all get out. Now if you watched the video and already started to break your neck be ready for another 13 tracks of bangers and features. Features include cuts from DJ Eclipse as well as guest MC’s Headkrack,Mims,Stro the MC & Eric Biddines. There’s even a produced track from Statick Selektah who’s always got boom bap greatness in his arsenal. But my notable favorite was “Belief” with special guest the legendary MC Serch. Some serious thought provoking real raps in there only solidifying why he will go down in hop hop history as one of the greats. The whole project is extremely tough. It’s one of those albums that you can just push play and let it go. This is the MC’s rap album. This is the graffiti artists rap album. “This Is For Us” bleeds for the b-boys, DJ’s and fans of the culture. If you don’t get what the hell I mean after all of this, just listen to what Menace has to say at the end of “Plain to See“. You’ll get it. Tons of great production and with nothing but value considering its all for FREE. Go get it my peoples. You can download it from Tha Addicts website here. Listen below and let me know what you think.
