On the first release off their forthcoming joint EP, West Coast rapper/beatsmith Blu and Virginia superproducer Nottz took the name “Boyz II Men” literally, using the ‘90s R&B group’s moniker as an oblique way of telling their competition to grow up. Similarly, the latest single has nothing to do with the streetwear brand Crooks and Castles. Rather, their rivals in the rap game are the titular Crooks in Castles, and the emcee/producer duo are storming the gates. Of course, they aren’t doing it alone; Homeboy Sandman, ANTHM, Sene and Johaz each jump on Nottz’s dissonant, sampled beat to deliver an aggressive guest 16. Feeling it? More bangers await on Gods in the Spirit EP, set to drop next Tuesday, October 22, via Coalmine Records.
