More good music from Muneshine & Ghettosocks in preparation for their upcoming project, Kissing Hands and Shaking Babies. It’s taken me two posts to notice the joke in the album title, so yes I’m pretty slow. “Handsome Devils” lives up to its inherent arrogance with great delivery from both rappers. Athough I still am a bit more in favour of Ghettosocks in terms of overall rapping, Muneshine does shine (see what I did there?) nicely on the opening verse and brings the confident coolness a song like this needs. Shouts to The Real Frequency for this.
This ain’t no cliff-hanger, ain’t no mystery or trick answer.
Twin Peaks is a duo consisting of Halifax native Ghettosocks and Saskatchewan-born, Toronto-raised Muneshine. I’ve posted Ghettosocks on B&B before and for good reason. He’s got one of those smooth, hypnotic flows and knows how to drop a verse with direction as opposed to one full of aimless one-liners. Muneshine produced “Just Say No” and he deserves credit for the amazing sampling on this. The mobster story is the focus of attention of these visuals and is delivered nicely. “Just Say No” is off of Shaking Hands & Kissing Babies, so search that up if you want to hear more. By the way, did anyone else think for a second that the girl in this looks like Catherine Zeta-Jones?
Got an award and a couple nominates / But an Akon chorus kept my Book from a trophy.
Pardon the tacky artwork, but don’t let that throw you off. For those of you States-side, I have to explain why the above line is the dirtiest line I’ve heard all year. At last year’s Junos (the Canadian Grammys), D-Sisive’s The Book was nominated for Best Rap Album against Kardinal Offishall’s Not 4 Sale, which if you recall was led by the strength of the single “Dangerous” feat. Akon. The Book was much more highly acclaimed critically and by fans than Not 4 Sale, yet still lost. Canada might not produce many great mainstream rappers, but our underground is fire (fuck being modest!).After dropping three albums last year, D-Sisive is already back at it, this time inspired by a documentary called “Anvil! The Story Of Anvil” and the Dead man’s Bones LP. Read the rest of this entry (yes, I still have more to say) and download the track after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
