Sucker emcees beware – Fred Knuxx is ready to to take over the whole damned game! In stark contrast to the more subdued, old-school feel of previous features Chips, Sidetracked, and Bring Back More, digital LP inclusion Lock N Load, is pure white-knuckle intensity; the Delaware up-and-comer showcases a newfound aggressiveness on the verses, shooting hostile but frequently funny barbs at his competition (“You fashion rappers get buried in your designer coffins). It’s Dipset producer A Million, however, who really amps up the tension, delivering a jittery melange of relentless hi-hat, orchestral hits and bloodcurdling screams. It’s kinda overwhelming, especially if you went as heavy on the coffee as I did this morning. If this two-fisted track gets you hyped to hear more from Fred Knuxx, you can download a copy of The Big Deal when it hits online retailers in late November. In addition, fans can keep it locked to the Booth for more on Knuxx’ long-awaited, Untitled studio album, coming sometime in 2010.
