It has been eight years since veteran Chicago Hip-Hop trio Do Or Die made an album. Belo, N.A.R.D., and AK are still in tact though, as the Rap-A-Lot Records vets recently premiered a video for “Loud Pack.” What could be dismissed as a cliche weed anthem actually employs some of the game-changing styles that D.O.D. used dating back to 1996’s Picture This. The soulful sound, and slow-to-fast-rap transitions influenced Kanye West, GLC, Ludacris, and a host of others.

How do you feel about Do Or Die keeping things to the core?
