    Product Details


    Indy rap veterans Blacastan and Stu Bangas have joined forces and formed the duo "Watson and Holmes", with an LP set to be released on Brutal Music.

    Fresh off his strong showing on the new Army Of The Pharaoh's album, "In Death Reborn", Blacastan is looking to continue his strong push to the top of the genre. Meanwhile Stu Bangas' aims to follow up last year's collaborative LP with Esoteric, "Machete Mode" with an equally impressive album.

    Hailing from Hartford, CT, the Demigodz and AOTP member Blacastan brings his throwback, gritty, story telling style to the project, seamlessly dropping gems over Stu Bangas' hard hitting production. Whether it be braggadocios punch lines, found on the standout cut "Nubian Metal" (featuring Vinnie Paz and Celph Titled) or introspective life experiences, found on the song "Change", Blacastan sounds at home over the albums grimy soundscape.

    Stu Bangas' resume reads like a hardcore, indy rap producer's dream. Having produced on albums for Vinnie Paz, Sean Price, Ill Bill, Chino XL, Cappadonna and more, he is now focusing on pushing his label, Brutal Music to the head of the class. Watson and Holmes is the imprint's first salvo, and it's quite simply a home run.

    Comment: I'm also not huge fan of Stu Bangas, but I'll admit that this album is a great fit with Prime Minister Blac. Blac murders the mic and is quickly becoming one of my favorite emcees in the game. There's some instrumentals throughout the album where I have to give props to Stu Bangas, I find this album to be his best work yet. MUST COP! Don't sleep.

    Comment: Not a fan of Stu Bangas - like others I think all his sh*t sounds the same. Blacastan keeps his side of the bargain, but the beats are dull!

    Comment: I must be listening to something different, this is definitely not a 4.5 star album. Joint is mediocre at best. D-Train was right when he said the beats are weak. Sounds just like the rest of the average hip hop I currently hear.

    Comment: This is a good album and is definitely worth checking out. Stu Bangas for the most part lays down solid soundscapes for the always reliable Blacastan. Some of the beats could've been better and frankly I could've done without the AOTP features. Not really feeling that movement. But as a complete album, it's definitely gonna be worth checking for.

    Comment: This is Blacastan's best work to date. You can tell Stu Bangas really understands Blacastans flow and provided him with the perfect back drop of beats for this project. This is dope keep it going Blacastan and Stu Bangas!

    Comment: Beats on this LP are dope as hell. Only a few I didn't like. Blacastan gets boring to me at times, but the production carried it well for me. I also like the interludes and skits between each song, it adds to the overall album feel and theme.

    Comment: Album is dope. Definitely grows on you. The samples in this album help create the Watson and Holmes theme. Mabe one beat I didnt like. I would like to hear Blacastan pick up different flows. However, he does bring some head banging lyrics with good content in this one. Other than that, I give it 4.5 stars.

    Comment: Blacastan is one of the most underrated emcees in the game right now, he's gonna blow the f**k up.. He's got crazy bars and flow.. I AGREE WITH QONVEX BELOW!! Stu Bangas and Vanderslice shop the same samples and have the same sound!! Their productions were so tight, now they just all sound the same. Like a bad 80's B movie soundtrack with some wrestling themes thrown in. YAWN!!!

    Comment: Blacastan probably powerbunted this out the park, stu bangas is consistent and strong on the prodoction front. I am assuming a must have, deep stories and hardpressed raps. This aint no little kid rap, its grown man biz kids, ill coverart and reminds me of the 90s microphone glow-producing emcee.
