Click… click… bang! That’s the sound of The Accomplices cocking back the hammer and firing a bullet made of pure hip-hop directly into… well, whichever part of your brain processes dope beats and rhymes. (I’m a music journalist, dammit, not a neurosurgeon.) Making its world premiere right here on our front page, the inaugural leak off the production duo’s DJBooth-sponsored EP finds The Jake and Re-Produced series participant BroadNMarket flipping a psychedelic, Chipmunk-pitched sample into a bruising backdrop for bars by a bevy of underground flame-spitters. Guilty Simpson, Damien Randle, D. Rose, TWICE and MaG each bring their most potent lyrical ammunition to the record, together delivering a hard rain of rhymes guaranteed to leave listeners’ eardrums stinging—in a good way. Is this action-packed jam, to quote the hook, “...as good as it gets?” If you answered in the affirmative, you can expect plenty more bangers where this came from on The Accomplices’ 10-90 EP, scheduled to hit our mixtape page June 6, for free streaming and download.
