If grimy, no-nonsense hip-hop gives you the willies, than I suggest locking your doors, boarding up the windows, and hiding under the bed for the next three minutes and 40 seconds. Unfortunately, even if you take all of those precautions, You Ain’t Safe from the latest hardheaded hip-hop cut from veteran emcee Termanology. Project collaborator Shortfyuz’ minimalist beat, driven by a distant, hollow bell that creates a callous, cold vibe, perfectly sets the stage for the Boston native’s ruthless rhymes. Termanology, along with his guests, Wu-Tang alum Inspectah Deck and upstart buzzmaker Maffew Ragazino, show why they are underground favorites, each displaying their unique yet similarly grimy styles. Long after the record is complete You Ain’t Safe, but protection awaits in the form of Termanology’s GOYA (Gunz Or Yay Available) album, due out next month. We swear.
