Some of the best collaborations come from chance encounters (no, not you Soulja and Gucci). After meeting at Rock the Bells in Detroit last year, Truck North and The 3rd have been making some pretty good noise together. If you need an example, look no further than their newest offering, Out There, which highlights the talents on both ends of the spectrum. Backed by DJ Premier‘s gritty and string-laden production, North and The 3rd all bounce back and forth on their bars like they’ve been together for years, giving listeners a taste of what they have to come: “It’s like the coming of a king, until nine months later a prince hits the scene.” Be sure to check their Nah Right x Elevator Music Presents: Reconstruction Mixtape, due out in late May. As always, Booth Heads, keep it locked for more.
