After dropping some unexpected knowledge via last week’s release of Militant Minds, Boston duo Blak Madeen (Al-J and Yusuf) and emcee Tragedy Khadafi continue to deliver a stream of gritty lyricism on their latest DJBooth premiere Ready For War. Also prepared to battle are Reef The Lost Cauze and Blacastan, who each drop their own determination-drenched verses. Ready For War includes a mention of iconic Public Enemy emcee Chuck D, which is supremely fitting given how similar this record is to past Public Enemy releases. Taking the reigns on the production is Miestro Da Semi Conductor, who keeps Ready For War relatively fast-paced thanks to his use of drum-kicks and percussion. Both Militant Minds and Ready For War will be featured on Blak Madeen and Tragedy Khadafi’s joint EP Militant Minds, which will be released on DJBooth on September 10, via Leedz Edutainment.
