There are only a few rappers out there who can pull off using the word “eviscerated” in a single; Chino XL just so happens to be one of them. Cross Your Heart finds the Jersey rapper in his typical battle rap craze, throwing around over-the-top punchlines and politically incorrect remarks like nobody’s mama is listening. Guest emcee Bun B shows up for one of his more memorable guest appearances, bringing just as much heat as Chino in his verse and on the hook, and Aftermath producer Focus, an alleged protégé of Dr. Dre himself, lays down an eerie, piano-driven beat. Overall, the track is as menacing an affair as its title suggests. Cross Your Heart will appear on Chino XL’s forthcoming album, The Secret (Fall ’08).
