Black Flag Records - You Wanna Battle

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
The Unbeatables
Album:
DJ Green Lantern Presents a Coup d'état

Peaceniks and shrinking violets can hit ‘back’ too – as you may have gathered from the record’s confrontational title, Black Flag Records’ new mixtape single (and first Booth feature) is the musical equivalent of a thrown gauntlet. Who are A.Moss (Bottom of the Barrel, All I Have), JJ Bass and Herron looking to pick a fight with on You Wanna Battle? Well, damned near everyone in the music game. Over The Unbeatables’ gritty, boom-bap boardwork (complete with a hook featuring samples from Black Moon’s How Many M.C.‘s and Missy Elliot‘s Get Ur Freak On, to name a couple), the trio take aim at such popular targets as sucker emcees, skinny-jeaned hipsters and out-of-touch radio DJs, delivering aggressive bars packed with intricately-rhymed braggadocio: “It’s easy to see, we feat on these feeble emcees, just give me the beat and drop it like seasonal leaves.” So, readers, do the Black Flag crew have the on-the-mic skills to start a musical revolution? If you think they might, you can find out for sure on their DJ Green Lantern Presents a Coup d’état mixtape, released Tuesday and available now for free download.
