Listen: Step Brothers (Alchemist & Evidence) – “Ron Carter”

Rhymesayers Entertainment is releasing an album by Cali-A-likes the Step-Brothers aka Evidence and Alchemist on 1-21-14 called “Lord Steppington”.

Evidence says of the above song, : ““The beat kinda reminded me of “We Are The World” -especially the drums. If you listen to 2:12 of “We Are The World,” you will hear what I’m talking about. The rap style was inspired by a group called Big Fortune that recorded a classic album in 1987, but unfortunately had to disband due to Lenny, the bands lead DJ. Lenny became self destructive and ruined everything. David Letterman’s dressing room was the last straw, in 1989, when Chico punched Lenny and sent him into a coma. He died weeks later and Chico was sentenced to 25 to life, for involuntary manslaughter. Still a classic to us, though. Step Brothers pays homage to Lenny, Chico , & all of the Big Fortune team.”

Video: Skeletonwitch – “Serpents Unleashed”


(noisey

This Skelatonwitch song “Serpents Unleashed” off the Athens Ohio band’s new album of the same title that dropped today on Prosthetic Records is pretty brutal. I saw them at the Legion of Doom years ago but missed them opening up for Ghost B.C. a few weeks ago.
