Sean Price & Grand Puba Do Some Bar Bullying on the Newly-Released “We Don’t Play” (Audio)

Next month (October 9), QNC will release their debut album, The Habit Of A Lifetime (And How To Kick It). The Attic Records release is a collaboration between Curt Cazal (of 1980s Hip-Hop group JVC Force) and Q-Ball (D&D Crew) and veteran English producer Aim. Previously, Aim has released  a number of albums, working with the likes of Diamond D, Souls Of Mischief, and A.G.

On the pulp fiction novel-inspired album, “We Don’t Play” is a strong moment. Featuring Brand Nubian’s Grand Puba, the cut also includes a verse by Sean Price, who worked on this album before his tragic August death. The producer and four MCs yield strong chemistry together. Over Aim’s rousing synth beat, Sean plays clean up, leaving his mark—just as his did in the hearts and ears of so many. For lyric Heads, this song is filled with Rap-referential allusions (multiple EPMD nods, Jay Z, etc.)

Six years after “The Force,” Habit Of A Lifetime is a cool thing coming through for the true-school Heads.
