Bases Loaded – Lupus Dei x Chuck Chan

What It Sound Like?

It's really cool when underground rappers have signature sounds, as much as signed rappers. When it comes to signature sounds, I think AZ, Scarface, Jadakiss. I'm only naming a few, the flows are so  recognized  and could freeze time. Lupus Dei has the same effect, the piercing voice and high end flow captures the audience.

Key pusher Chuck Chan is also one who sticks out of the bunch. He assembled the  soulful samples for the entire home run audio reel. Grandslam has a stolen base from General Back Pain off second. Yea, his style slides into the defense causing a concussion. With this teamwork, IKING opportunities are hard to refuse, though Lup goes dolo for The Process. Hard by street standards, yet ready to spin on radio.

Clockwork is right for anyone focused on their hustle. Notice the comfort with financial talk outside the drug game, outside the country! The artist is most detailed by The Long Road. Intimate demand by the instruments, Lupus opens the vault to lyrics and luxury.

One of the slickest lines from BL, "I give it all that I got/ I'm all that you not/ King Lup I could pull a sword out a rock/"  Back Pain reappears to further the blow out in the fifth inning  bringing it to an early close. This piece has to be added to your SoundCloud or Bancamp collection. Also, follow their pages! Get ready for upcoming album, 1994 by Lupus Dei. Thanks for your feedback, may the Lord  shower you with blessings.

INSIGHT ON-SITE / Deuce Hennessy x Chuck Chan x Kil

What It Sound Like? 

Getting ready for a new week. Always looking forward to opportunity. Before we advance, let's get into one more #HomeTeam chapter. Deuce  Hennessy merge with double headed producer, Chuck Chan and Kil. An interesting approach.

 All vocals by way of Deuce, so we get a cycle of his personality. Let alone, a few vocal samples. The combined production of Kil and Chan is quite instrumental. Collectively, the entirety of each track is strong. Instead of one overwhelming plug in. They are laid back, mirroring the West New York artist.

 A great portion of this piece is revealing. He patterns his style with  compound rhymes, rarely relying on single ended bars. Many witty  cadences pierce through the rough mold of past hardships. Fear or  Respect gives you an idea of why he mentioned depression in Overthinking. One of my favorite emcees, used rap as his cure and landed a record  deal with the biggest label in our culture. Joe Budden battled similar issues and became very successful with Def Jam. Flows are different, but not a bad example of aspiration. Opposition is embraced on joints like I Know They Hate Me and Dish To Pass. The tone shifts, sound of victory is more noticeable. The liveliest beat was saved for last. Deuce goes back in with the bars on Elder Statesman. Standing his ground as a true lyricist.

 I like when projects close with lyrics and heavy percussion. It's like a  cliffhanger leading to a new movie. This album is play list material,  already in mine. Add it to yours. Thank the readers and other talents that support the support. Most High blessings to you and yours! 

Lo – General Back Pain x Chuck Chan

What It Sound Like?

This can't wait any longer, it's a Hometeam thing, and I warned ya!  While heads got gassed by the media attempts to separate our rap community with regional sub-titles I listened to all sections. My ear was groomed early by the authentic sound of Rappin 4-Tay Dru Down, Hieroglyphics, list goes on. Our topic tonight is slick as sleet, General Back Pain is throwback to the names prior.

 The signature designed flow glides along Chuck Chan aligned tracks.  The samples are from retros with variety, including pieces from old spirituals. Chuck keeps his digs in a lane remaining outside the ordinary. You'll even find him exercising his lyrical skills on Crenshaw & Imperial. Track so hard, I don't blame him. IKing partner, Lupus Dei also inks a feature on Golden Flows. Trading fire verses over a melodic overseas extract.

GBP gave you the organic Inglewood welcome with audio from the  natives speaking on real life events. His familiar personality puts you  court side of the action. Yet, the lines in songs like Monster Kody and Lo are nothing common. "I don't take my socks off when I hit it." Hip Hop is a match of proving invincibility, gotta have  room for  humor. Pain raps it up with a satellite radio approach. LOTU has bars for spittas, light drums, and a wavy chorus.

Listeners get to know GBP with Lo at SoundCloud. Chuck Chan production, you can't go wrong. Thanks for supporting the artists and RAN. God bless you! 

What it is – Chuck Chan

What It Sound Like?

I had this issue in mind as part of a Sleeper- series, initially. Time permits for only one artist at the moment. I feel it's a Most Slept-on of the year. Chuck Chan is held in high regard for his beat making beyond the border. Let's give him more respect for the rap capabilities.

"Everybody pump gas, but they stuck with regs" - Infamy

"View from the six same place where they bury em" - Ladies And Gentleman

Just a couple one liners I wanted to point out. Obviously not new to Chuck, unsuspected fans could still appreciate being put on. The bars are so impressive, he only saved enough space for a verse from a single other artist. Hometeam running mate, General Back Pain left a smoky trail on Jewelry. The chemistry is evident.

Being his own producer, Chan had an advantage of the direction the  mood travels. An interesting switch with the self-titled track. The background becomes more dramatic.  Talk About That Sh**  is a beat I would rhyme on. Yet, I wouldn't change what already exist. The sample chosen for Ya Lost It is rare and perfect. The vocal loop what we crave for. Charlie closes the show with a statement. Leaving it up to bars, no hook. Minimal instruments, so you focus on the rhyme.

 Good for the soul and easy on the pockets. Run up the streams at  Soundcloud, and click Follow. Thank for keeping up, everybody. Most High blessings!

Moving in a different direction through this post tonight. I sidelined an album to give the streams a cool EP. It’s been weighing on me to work with these individuals riding with me on the project. They all did what I visualized, and more!
