Bryant Dope - Real Is All I Know
For some rappers, realness is a commitment. For Bryant Dope, it’s the default—and the only—setting. So I don’t even need to tell you that the Queens representative drops some serious knowledge on his latest EP single, Real Is All I Know. Here, Marc.R‘s eerie bells and offbeat samples back the emcee as he offers insight into the never-ending battle between ignorance and enlightenment, as well as some raw and uncut commentary on the Crack Epidemic: “Bricks of caine, bricks of caine, gave black people money and pain / Ronald Reagan served it up like heroin, and tapped a vein.” Max Hliva‘s gritty official visuals round out the package. Released to the ‘net last Monday, Bryant Dope’s Raw Dope EP is available now for free download from the artist’s official site.
