You know what really grinds my gears? When you have legends and pioneers in the game complain about “the state of Hip Hop” and then call out dudes like Soulja Boy. If you don’t like something about the game, why highlight the negatives? Or if they don’t do that, they’ll be like, yeah I’m listening to Jay, Nas, Kanye and T.I.. WTF? I’ve never heard one of the legends say, “yeah the game is twisted right now, but these cats, X, Y, and Z, they doin they thing, keepin that real Hip Hop alive”. This is why people don’t give old heads respek son! [yall know who im talkin about!]
Children of the Night – Rap Juggernauts
This shit was bumped on repeat ∞….
Exhibit A: Children of the Night. “COTN”[cotton] for short. This trio is a relatively new group, but if just one old head gave them a listen, I think a cosign would be in order. They definitely have that sound that bridges the old and the new so effortlessly. The group consists of 3 mc’s: Versa, Remy Banks & Lansky. They hail from Queens. [They reference the F train a lot, Roosevelt Island & East!] and their debut mixtape album 100% is out and available for download. So what exactly can you expect when you listen to Children of the Night?
