Archie Bang - Rebirth (Of Ill)
The first DJBooth feature from Archie Bang sounds like the birth of a long career on our front page. It is also, according to the artist, the Rebirth (Of Ill). Moreover, it marks the demise of the Brooklyn emcee’s rivals in the game; this effort is so strong it will make aspiring rappers rethink their career choice. Bang’s grimy, uncompromising flow is distinctive, but what really makes him stand out from the street-oriented-rapper crowd is his crisp, confident delivery. Over a 12keyz production driven by a superb bassline, Bang delivers each line like it’s his last. If Rebirth has sparked your interest, or created a hip hop transformation, you’ll be able to hear more on the artist’s forthcoming, currently-unscheduled Never Say Die LP.
