Chubb Rock & Wordsmith ft. Kimia Collins - Back In

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Wordsmith
  • Track: Back In ft. Kimia Collins
  • Producer: Strada
  • Album: A Crack in the Bridge Mixtape

This June, underground emcee Wordsmith and industry vet Chubb Rock plan to drop a collaborative album called Bridging the Gap; in the meantime, the duo are looking to heighten listener anticipation by releasing promo records that will not be available on the album proper, but will be collected on a forthcoming mixtape called A Crack in the Bridge. The “gap” the twosome are looking to bridge is, of course, the metaphorical chasm that separates old and new-school hip-hop, and the newly-released Back In will give listeners a good idea of how they plan to accomplish this feat—while Strada's relaxed boardwork and Kimia Collins' soulful hook give the cut a nostalgic vibe, the two emcees bring distinct brands of lyrical freshness to the table, Chubb channeling his commanding rasp into compellingly freeform rhymes, and Word showcasing his skills as a storyteller. If the duo's unique blend of old and new has your interest piqued, watch for more promo cuts in the near future.
