Suicide Kings – Savages ft M.O.P.
Anybody who knows me knows that M.O.P. is one of my favorite groups in all of music. The same way that Public Enemy channeled Hard Rock angst and chutzpah in the ’80s, Billy Danze and Lil Fame rocked out in the ’90s. While I hope we get another LP with the quality and cohesion of Warriorz (Mash Out Posse was really close), it’s to be commended how the Brownsville bat-swingers bring an edge to the feature role. Whether with the X-Ecutionerz, Gang Starr or LFO (remember that one?), the First Family toughens up anything they touch. That’s the case on this breakthrough single from Suicide Kings. Joey Knuckles and King Cole play nicely against two MCs who never play nice on the appropriately-titled “Savages” from last week’s Crown Of Thorns release. Related: P-Money – The Hardest ft M.O.P.
