Pop the Brown Hornet & King Just – Best of Both Hoods (IN STORES EVERYWHERE:10-7-16)
Best of Both Hoods is a really special project. Pop da Brown Hornet, of the legendary GP-Wu crew, representing Stapleton Projects, meets living legend King Just representing Park Hill, who was a member of the famed Shaolin Soldiers. Two icons of Hip-Hop history unite in this Staten Island, New York Hip-Hop milestone. The beats are raw yet relevant. The lyrics are sharp and stinging, and the stories they tell are like urban griots, reflections of a day gone by. For this album these gentlemen decided to go a different route than the usual “all pile-on” Shaolin ciphers, or “big name” epic guest features. They decided to bring it all back to how Hip-Hop was when it was classic and great: Just two master craftsmen showing they they do best. This is not a reissue, this is a brand new Thrice Great Records/Chambermusik release for 2016.
