Way back in March of 2009, theBREAX introduced themselves to Booth readers with For What, a retro-informed single so fresh that, by the time listeners realized the Cali trio were preaching a very different message from your average hip-hop act, they were already hooked. Two years later, they’re back with, well, More Of the same: uniquely dope hip-hop music designed to get heads nodding to the Good News. Lex Luthorz handles the beat, flipping some African-style chants a la Kanye‘s Power as rappers Ruslan, Beleaf, Mic B showcase a commitment to dope lyricism as ironclad as their faith; whether you agree or disagree, you’ve gotta respect emcees who can lace a beat with lines like “...pseudo-spirituality mixed with postmodernistic thought only causes more casualties.” So, have theBREAX succeeded in elevating your spirit – or least gotten your toes tapping? Keep it locked; though this is just a promo single, you can rest assured we’ll bring you all the latest news and tunes!
