As it turns out, the Embassy Music Board left a few things behind when they embarked upon their debut street release, and the ATL-based quartet are now preparing to showcase all the Extra Cargo that didn’t quite fit on Embassy Presents International Ties Foreign Affairs. As evidenced by this new leak, though, the bonus mixtape will be much more than a plate of reheated leftovers. Borrowing the production from DJ Green Lantern‘s Barry Manilow-sampling remix of Hova‘s Sweet, Big A, K.O., Baby D.O.E., and Manolo fill us in on how far they’ve come in the music game and just how high they hope to climb in the future, acknowledging that life at the top isn’t always what it seems and paying tribute to those they’ve lost along the way. Brimming with thoughtful, ambitious lyricism, this cut is sure to leave many hungry for a second serving of the globetrotting foursome’s eclectic, style-jumping take on hip-hop. If you fall into that category, keep your browsers trained on our front page; EMB are set to drop off their Extra Cargo “soon.”
