If kids today are Bored of Education, tell them to check out the moving rhymes of underground rap group Brooklyn Academy. The whimsically-named emcees of B.A.—Block McCloud, Mr. Metaphor, and Pumpkinhead— delve deep into the problems of Brooklyn’s streets on their new single, Hide. Producer Illmind provides a dreamy soul sample with honey-thick vocals, adding gravity to the already-heavy subject matter. Accompanying the B.A. rappers are guest emcees Keith Murray, who swings by to commiserate about the drugs and guns that litter the streets, and Fresh Jones, who also drops a few bars about the difficulty of living in such a place. In Brooklyn, B.A. recommends that one Hide from all the terrors that haunt the ghetto, but we suggest you don’t hide from Bored of Education, out now.
