"The Precursor" Off Serum's Upcoming Album P.C.P. (Pre Campaign Propaganda)
I get a lot of complaints (or suggestions) that I don't promote local hip-hop enough. And I apologize.
But as a matter of fact, I've really been enjoying the local stuff recently. So much so, that outside of my usual appreciation for old-school rap (say '83 through '94), the only hip-hop I've been spinning is stuff that's made right here in our own community.
Just take Serum's "Precursor," a cut with a gruff delivery, like a fucking drill sergeant who delivers the goods.
This track is from Serum's upcoming effort P.C.P. (Pre Campaign Propaganda) and it features Manifesto and Self the Soulfuric on a production by Stijn Beats. It is a paranoid orchestral echo mixed with a delusional spoken-word sample that sounds like Kool Keith meeting the Wu Tang Clan on a fear and loathing hell-ride.
Let's hope the full album hits my hands soon!
