Back in Y2K, when Nelly was enjoying the success of his debut album, Country Grammar, and his St. Lunatics were getting ready to drop their own major-label debut, group member City Spud was sentenced to 10 years in prison for first-degree assault. Soon afterwards, the group began to campaign for his release, even naming that debut album Free City. Seven years and a few Platinum hits later, City’s been released, and the Lunatics are gearing up for their sophomore LP, the aptly-named City Free. Their new, self-titled single has no need for a hook or a fancy name. Ali, Kyjuan, City Spud, Nelly, and Murphy Lee spit some of their most lyrically-driven verses to date over a brass-heavy beat courtesy of producer Wyshmaster, once again joining forces to form the Midwest’s foremost hip-hop Voltron. City Free should make a strong regional impact when it drops this summer—just in time, perhaps, for the St. Louis Cardinals to host this year’s All-Star Game…?
