Back in February, Thurzday and Y.O. of U-N-I teamed up with Talib Kweli for Return, a cut that earned reader applause for the emcees’ blazing hot verses as well as Music Man producer Lee Bannon‘s narcoticly hazy instrumental. Now, all involved in that Booth smash are back again again, this time with a few more collaborators in tow. New mixtape leak The Return pt.2, Bannon’s first feature as an artist, retains his spare instrumental, the sung hook, and two of the original verses, but features new bars from Zion I emcee Zumbi and Brooklyn buzzmaker Sha Stimuli—the latter’s energetically-flowed final verse is a definite standout, and ends the cut on a high note. The left-of-center style that set Return apart from the pack is no less fresh in pt.2, and the added verses make this retread a welcome one. Those who like what they’re hearing can find more hot beats and high-caliber guest bars on Bannon’s Check Point mixtape, set to hit the ‘net September 30.
