Being real, raw and true to hip-hop's roots may not be a surefire path to fame and fortune, but it will place you high in the esteem of the DJBooth readers. Just ask Dana Coppafeel and Da Ricanstructa, whose DJBooth-hosted collaborative set currently enjoys a phenomenal 4.9-star average rating, as well as a spot on our very own Mixtape Chart. For a taste of the musical stylings that have our readership paying Homage, Respect to the Wisconsin duo, simply take a listen to this newly-released single/standout cut. Inspired by a line from Nas' verse on Fat Joe's John Blaze, this cut finds Ricanstructa slicing and dicing gritty string samples into a bombastic backdrop for his and his partner's bruising, surreally inventive battle rhymes: “You're just a teddy bear, I'm a monster nightmare / Composed of everything, that's why I”m everywhere.” Have Break Bread earned your Respect with this unfettered display of mic murder? Then what are you waiting for—click here to stream and/or download their debut set, The Reunion, for free in the DJBooth.
