Since the days of finger snaps and hand claps, emcees have been rapping about the Hustle. Following in the footsteps of their elders, Ohio trio Fly Union offer their two cents on the subject on their latest feature. Like its lyrical theme, the song’s sound is traditional, but dope. Ivan “Iye” Houpe‘s drum-heavy, sampled boardwork is Production 101. The crew’s bars also have a throwback feel. Sure, their flows scream “1996,” but their charisma and energy give the song a fresh, contemporary appeal. Hip-hop purists and casual fans alike will want to keep it locked for more new singles leading up to the unscheduled release of Fly Union’s next album, Small Victories.
