Don’t make any sudden moves, readers—The Rockness Monstah is in the building, and he’s pissed. On solo Booth debut Drop ‘Em, making its world premiere right here on our front page, the Heltah Skeltah member and Boot Camp Clik alumnus takes the opportunity to set the public straight on a few contentious issues—and illuminate the grisly fate that awaits those who don’t take heed. Commencing with the announcement, “We can handle this like gentlemen or get into some gangster sh*t,” Rock promptly decides to do things the hard way, daring listeners to defy him (“I’m a strapper plus I love biscuits, so why risk it?”) as he dispels misconceptions about his career—including rumors of a Heltah Skeltah “breakup”—and derides the general wackness pervading the game. Seattle beatsmith BeanOne amplifies Rockness’ message with a grimy, sample-laced beat that perfectly complements the artist’s combative tone, and DJ DP ONE ties it all together with some old-school cuts. Feeling it? Drop ‘Em is just one of many bangers to be found on Coalmine Records compilation Unearthed. Keep it locked for release details on the project!
