Vinyl LP Record [2LP]
Back with that grit, tell the soundman to turn this shit up. New York emcee Hassaan Mackey (Rawkus 50) slangs words and onomatopoeia, rhymes like he wants to, and backs the whole room into a corner with a raw vision of the streets that pierces ordinary experience and gets at life's marrow. Meanwhile Detroit producer Apollo Brown (The Reset, Brown Study, Gas Mask, Clouds) lays the sonic foundation with hard drums and big bass, while the crackle of vinyl hums. Gritty and soaked in soul, Daily Bread brings to mind an old photograph as it bangs out the system. Each track is heavy with a sense of atonement, haunted by experience, and energized by a cathartic sense of hope. Give us our Daily Bread and forgive us our trespasses.
