Some song titles are all hyperbole, and the actual records fail to live up to the hype. The title of DEMRICK’s latest feature, BARS, however, might be the understatement of the year, considering the phenomenal performances turned in by all parties involved. Ras Kass steps up to the plate first. The West Coast vet shows that he has more BARS than a jail cell, delivering his rhymes with a powerful and venomous flow. DEMRICK follows, showcasing a high-pitched yet grimy on-the-mic approach. After a brief instrumental section (cooked up by Chuck Inglish and Polyester The Saint), the power is cranked back up to full blast with an unapologetic, intense verse from Jon Connor. This star-studded record was not on DEMRICK’s Wings UP LP, which dropped last week, but don’t worry; there are plenty more BARS for you to enjoy on the project.
