Just how bad are Bekay‘s Hunger Pains? Judging by his latest feature, he must be starving to death. On Bloodsport, the second and final single off his forthcoming studio album, the NYC native announces his intent to hunt down and prey on not only his competition, but also you. While the emcee’s threats to pick off mosh-pit denizens with a bow and arrow might lead some to reconsider attending one of his live shows, those who keep a safe distance will find a lot to like here. From Shuko‘s old-school-horror flick strings, to Bekay’s bloodthirsty verses, to guest turntablist’s Dutchmaster‘s spliced hook (featuring lines sampled from Big Shug’s That’s the Way It Iz, ODB’s Brooklyn Zoo and Big Punisher‘s The Dream Shatterer), Bloodsport is pure catnip for lovers of hardcore East Coast hip-hop. Hunger Pains hits stores November 10th; in the meantime, fans should be sure and check out Brain Tumors, the emcee’s recent, reader-acclaimed contribution to our exclusive freestyle series.
