Some musicians are happy to simply maintain the status quo; Cold Heat, on the other hand, are all about Raising the Bar. On the Queens-repping duo’s latest single (and album title track), beatsmith Johnny Walker cooks up a scorching sample beat as crewmate Jak D trades verses with guest emcees Blacastan and Craig G. So, Booth readers, has this joint exceeded your expectations? There’s plenty more fire where this came from on Raising the Bar (the album), released last Tuesday, and available now in stores and online.
