Sometimes, the best solution to a group’s troubles is to take time off. Lots of it. Heltah Skeltah, a Boot Camp Clik affiliate composed of rappers Ruck (Sean Price) and Rock (Da Rockness Monsta), hasn’t put out an album in over a decade. After they built up a sizeable underground following with their grimy debut, Nocturnal, critics panned their lighter follow up, Magnum Force, as a colossal sophomore slump. Everything Is Helta Skeltah is the lead single off their long-awaited third LP, D.I.R.T. (Da Incredible Rap Team), due September 30. Surprisingly, the two Brooklyn emcees’ rapport hasn’t faded in the slightest. They both mix street rhymes with playful disses, throwing heat at everybody from Jay Z to Macy Gray to Diddy. Producer Ill Mind contributes an appropriately gritty, piano-driven beat. If Everything Is Helta Skeltah is any indication, D.I.R.T. could be worth the wait.
