First in Flight State veteran Rapper Big Pooh and West Coast mainstay Roc C may not be blood kin, but they and their respective cliques are as tight as the closest-knit families…. mafia or otherwise. On The Crew, single numero uno off their forthcoming collaborative full-length, the partners-in-rhyme join forces to teach us a little something about loyalty and allegiance. Though they’re held together by a strong communal spirit (“Everybody to a man responsible for each other.”), each individual can easily stand on his or her own; on the back, Roc refers to his inner circle as, “just a bunch of leaders.” Praise handles production duties, cooking up a gritty chopped-sample beat to back the collaborators’ steadfast bars. For The Crew and much more, cop the emcees’ Trouble in the Neighborhood LP, out now.
Update: We have added the Hayden Baptiste-directed visuals for Pooh and Roc’s The Crew single.
