With dark undertones and a bass driven beat by producer Bombay, new release Thelonius King is exactly the type of introspective track that Nature Sound‘s top emcees Blu, Tristate and R.A. The Rugged Man rip to shreds. Blu, who recently made a guest appearance on producer Oh No’s Jones’, kicks things off with a typically lyrical contribution, followed by rock solid 16s from Tri and the always hard Rugged Man (perhaps best known to newcomers as the guest on Immortal Technique’s cult hit Dance With the Devil). Fans of serious underground hip-hop, who thoroughly enjoy Thelonius King, will be able cop a limited edition “45 for Record Store Day in April, in addition to new albums from all three emcee’s.
