Those who aren’t tuned into the Arkansas indie scene may not be familiar with Suga City, but that shouldn’t be the case for much longer. The up-and-coming rap duo recently introduced themselves to gamers across the nation via megahit Xbox 360/PS3/Windows title Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Even if you don’t have a current-generation console or a souped-up PC, it’s easy to appreciate the New New style emcees Arkansas Bo and Goines bring to this soundtrack inclusion/mixtape single. Over Kwestion‘s street-certified organ/synth-brass boardwork, Suga City announce their intent to revolutionize the formerly-wack rap game, ushering the genre into a new era of freshness. That’s a tall order – are they up to the challenge? I’m going to go ahead and say “yes,” mostly because I’m impressed with their ability to work the word “haberdashery” into a rap verse, but I’ll let Booth readers have the final say. Those who like what they’re hearing can find this track and much more on the duo’s new Black Friday mixtape, released this past Friday (if you hadn’t guessed) and available now online.
