Carl Roe, Ripynt & Mean Doe Green - Love It That You Hate Us (FuGeeLa2012)
Got some animosity toward Carl Roe, Ripynt or Mean Doe Green? Don’t expect the emcees to return your hostile feelings. On this freshly-minted cut (a Booth-exclusive world premiere), the trio address their enemies with a line borrowed from Redman‘s Pick It Up: “To all MCs, I Love It That You Hate Us.” Not just a Valentine to the haters, this joint doubles as a 2012 update of a hip-hop classic; Salaam Remi‘s iconic sampled groove from ‘96 smash Fu-Gee-La backs the rhymesayers as they shellac their competition in witty, irreverent verses. This joint isn’t attached to a larger album, but rather intended to build anticipation for each of the co-headliners’ forthcoming projects. Keep it locked for the latest on Roe’s Full Metal Cardigan, Green’s Planet Rocked: It Ain’t My Fault” and Ripynt’s Momentum, all of which currently lack a solid drop date.
