In sports, a Power Play involves the concentration of a large number of players in a small area, with a view to overwhelming the defense. Though Ces Cru‘s new single features just three emcees, the title nonetheless fits, given the amount of lyrical muscle each of the individuals in question brings to the table. In addition to the fast, furious and fake-patois laced bars of crewmates Ubiquitous and Godemis, this cut boasts a kinetic middle 16 by label boss Tech N9ne. Seven, who we profiled last month in our “Behind The Boards” series, produces the joint’s dissonant, sample-laced instrumental backdrop. CodeName: Ego Stripper is scheduled for release August 5. In the meantime, of course, fans can keep it locked for the latest singles.
