Black Thought - Making A Murderer ft Styles P (Prod. 9th Wonder)

By Ralo

The urban lifestyle has always been a hive of activity in the world of hip-hop culture. First there is the visually arresting images of graffiti, then there is the hypnotic rotation of turntables. You can't forget the acrobatic display of b-boys or the oral expression of MCing.

The lyricist or the MC has long been the center of attention in the sub-culture of underground hip-hop. There are often many questions about who is the best lyricist or who can beat who in a battle. The topic of discussion also centers on who's new record is wack, and who's new record is heat, or which newcomers sound good and shows promise.  Lyrics, delivery and production all play key roles in judging the quality of underground hip-hop. Noncommercial rap has always had more poetic value than its corporate under produced counterpart.

This week we put our focus on new music from Black Thought and Styles P. The two have worked together in tandem in the past and have come together again with 9th Wonder on the beats. Making Of A Murderer is classic 9th Wonder style production which features loops that are interwoven over and in between each other. Lyrically Black Thoughts' wordplay is exceptional as always- he spits fire over what should be considered a 2016 summer classic.
