The 3rd Power (with Rashad) - Stool Pigeon
Thus far, buzzmaking crew The 3rd Power is two for two in the Booth; Arp and I Need a Hook both received above-average ratings from our readership. In keeping with the theme of threes, I have a feeling the newly-released Stool Pigeon will transform their winning streak into a hat trick. As usual, Rashad mans the mixing boards, crafting a breezy guitar-loop beat to accompany crewmates P.A., CoCity and Blaksmif as they share some free-associative reflections on gun violence, racism, the musical hustle and more. This ear-pleasing, lyrically substantial cut isn’t attached to the set, but fans should keep it locked for the latest on currently-unscheduled collaborative debut Attack of the Drum.
