In his exclusive interview with our own DJ Z, Phoenix, Arizona up-and-comer Willy Northpole explained that, though many associate his hometown with endless deserts and golf courses, it’s also home to some of our nation’s most treacherous hoods. On this new street leak, Northpole acts as Ghetto Tour Guide, describing the sights and sounds that denizens of Phoenix’s mean streets and of inner-city areas across the globe experience on the day-to-day. Over A Milli beatsmith Bangladesh‘s string-sampling instrumental, he points out such tourist attractions as drug deals, gang shootouts, and pimp-prostitute altercations. What listeners will either love or hate about this cut is that the emcee gets really into his “nerdy tour guide” role, adopting the goofiest accent I’ve heard since… well, since Eminem‘s last feature—regardless, there are some very funny lines here, and the record showcases a satirical streak that wasn’t evident in Northpole’s previous features. For more of the rapper’s many styles, pick up a copy of Tha Connect when it hits stores June 30th.
