Though boozing it up is a high priority for the Brown Bag AllStars, it takes more than a taste for the sauce to keep up with these Intoxicated Gentlemen; on their latest feature, one of two cuts recorded for 2Dope‘s latest compilation mixtape, the NYC crew reveal some of the other items on The Agenda: womanizing, terminating those who get in their way – oh, and coming up with some of the hardest-hitting punchlines I’ve heard in a minute. Over J57‘s sparse, gritty sample work, the All-Stars drop lyrical gems that range from the genuinely controversial (“I never rock over 808s voluntarily / and those who chose to do so, you embarrass me”) to the downright ridiculous (as in, name-dropping Phil Collins’ Sussudio). If you find this unapologetically underground joint to your taste, you’ll undoubtedly find plenty more to your liking on the Dallas Penn-hosted, DJ Slim-mixed A (2)Dope Mixtape: Empire State Ed., which has yet to receive a solid release date – as always, keep it locked for the latest!
