Long time west coast rap fans will instantly know his name, while the casual listener probably (sadly) recognizes MC Eiht from fellow LA native Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city and maybe, just maybe, from that Lloyd Banks line, “You ain’t gotta go all the way to LA to get your MC Eiht/emcee ate”. Regardless, even the newest of newcomers will now know the man as the force behind new release Smoke Sumthin. Produced by Booth fave Marco Polo, Smoke puts Eiht’s staccato’d flow to great use, resulting in a record that’s the epitome of rugged and raw hip-hop. Fans looking for more true school rap can find this cut, along with offerings from Masta Ace, Duck Down‘s big boy Sean Price and more, on Fat Beat’s recently-released compilation project, The Green EP: Sour Stacks & Hustling Jacks.
