If the four tracks we’ve already featured, along with the simple fact that two emcees as legendary as KRS-One & Buckshot have joined forces for one hi-octane collaborative project, haven’t convinced you to purchase a copy of the newly-released Survival Skills LP, you may be beyond help. For the few still on the fence, however, we present standout track Runnin Away, which finds the seasoned twosome teaming up with underground mainstay Immortal Technique to deliver a triple-helping of lyrical fire, with a side of revolutionary rhetoric. Veteran producer Black Milk‘s densely-layered boardwork has an exotic flair, and its syncopated percussion rhythm complements the collaborators’ aggressive flows beautifully. Intense, contentious and a tad paranoid, Runnin is sure to leave hardcore heads hyped. Survival Skills dropped today via Duck Down Records and is available now in stores and online. Watch for another track off the album to hit our frontpage next week!
