MC Eiht & Beneficence Drop Coast To Coast Wisdom On A Scratch-Driven Beat (Audio)
Newark, New Jersey’s Beneficence keeps the interesting collaborations coming. Following his Masta Ace-featured “When The Sun Come,” Bene’ brings in another 1980s alum in MC Eiht. While Brick City and Hub City are more than 3,000 miles apart, the two rhyme veterans find common ground on “Anyway It Goes.”
The song finds two O.G.’s spitting golden game on how to navigate the perils and pitfalls, in life and in Rap. Eiht offers up one of the best features he’s done since good kid, m.A.A.d city, that fits nicely in his trademark narrative of street treachery. Beneficence references some Compton’s Most Wanted titles and Eiht lines in his two verses. The two draw on regional symbols, and how “one-time” is still one of the biggest dangers out there, but not just for gangsters.
KON Sci weaves in Mobb Deep, GZA, and more in his precise, DJ Premier-influenced scratch-chorus. Heads questioning how Which Way Is West (Eiht’s upcoming album with Preemo) may sound, get an unlikely possibility in this stellar collabo.
This song, and the Ace feature, appear on January 29’s Basement Chemistry, coming on Ill Adrenaline Records.
