Fair warning, this one is iller than an ebola outbreak. For Strong Arm Steady‘s new cut Fair Fight the L.A. trio grabs a beat from Boston godfather Statik Selektah that would have even invertebrates nodding their heads. An instrumental like that is only fuel to the always fire rhymes that SAS emcees Krondon, Mitchy Slick and Phil the Agony unleash. Add a trio of TDE‘s finest - aka ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock, aka all of Black Hippy expect for Kendrick - and you’ve got a rap onslaught that’s frankly a very unfair fight for the competition. For more hip-hop music so sick it should come with a penicillin prescription, be sure to pick up a copy of Strong Arm Stready’s Stereotype album, produced entirely by Statik and due out August 14 via Stones Throw.
