So i am going to make it a hip hop hat-trick for this week and its a beauty from a great EP.
Big Block Silvers hail from Oceanside, California. I came across their BOLD EP on bandcamp. Its the only thing they have up on the site so i assume its their first proper release. And what a release it is – Out in Feb of this year it is 6 tracks of quality hip hop. And when i say Hip Hop….i mean Hip Hop. While it sounds bang up to date it definitely has direct links to the great stuff of the 90s. The two stand out tracks are Run The Show (which absolutely kicks and takes me back to Rasco's unassited) and tonights track Jack Sparrow which really brings to life that 90s era. My word, after the intro that huge beat kicks in and that awesome flow starts and it doesn't let up till some ace cutting kicks in and the track ends with the same intro. Both the production and Blame Ones rhymes are well worth a huge nod. Fantastic stuff and an ep well worth picking up on bandcamp.
