Of all the regions that have yet to make a name for themselves as hip-hop hot spots, the Carolinas are looking like the next to blow. Oh, you want actual proof to back up that assertion? Then I present you with… Actual Proof, a Raleigh duo so fresh and talented that “n*ggas can’t Breathe” when they come through. Amp of Soul Council mans the mixing boards, cooking up a street-red, piano-led back complete with a hook sampled from Fabolous’ cut of the same name. Lyrically, Enigma and Sundown keep things smooth and sophisticated, dropping bars that sound like they could’ve been ripped from a spy flick’s screenplay: “Counterfeit passport and travel with a plan for green / Swiss bank account, document a falsified name, learn game from Jason Bourne…” Lending a hand on the guest tip, fellow First in Flight state repper Rapsody laces the front with some characteristically high-impact braggadocio. Like what you’re hearing? Then be sure to check back with us this Saturday (the 15th), when A.P.‘s Booth-sponsored Talented Tenth EP arrives on our mixtape page for free streaming and download.
