Ouick, cover your ears with duct tape and plastic wrap! The DJBooth.net Department of Homeland Security has received word that North Carolina-based extremist cell The Away Team are preparing to strike via the headphones of unsuspecting hip-hop lovers. The fifth exclusive world premiere in DJBooth.net and Event Electronics’ 20/20 Music series, this album outtake is perhaps the dopest Terrorist Attack ever perpetrated on U.S. Soil. Khrysis goes heavy on the samples, layer snippets of a (slightly too muffled to recognize) soul classic with a street-certified rhythm section and topping it all off with a vocal snippet from Royce Da 5’9‘s Warriors (“Compare us to the Arabs, this a terrorist attack!”). This time, however, the First in Flight State beatsmith/rapper isn’t satisfied chilling out behind the boards—Khrysis opens proceedings with an aggressive opening 16, which partner-in-rhyme Sean Boog follows with an even grimier second verse. While this joint didn’t make it onto the duo’s album, fans can hear more where this came from on the crew’s just-released Scars & Stripes LP. In addition, keep it locked for 15 more DJBooth exclusives leading up to the arrival of Event’s 20/20 Music compilation.
