‘Cause they, one of ’em black and the other one white (Uh-huh)
So if you don’t like ’em, you automatically racist. 

”Walking in the Snow”

It’s been a loooooong time since I heard an album that immediately when it’s over I put it on again and again and again…

The album starts out hard and heavy and sets the tone with ”Yankee and the bra e (ep.4)”.

Next up we get ”Ooh la la” featuring Greg Nice and DJ Premier and it’s the first track from the album with a official video (down below) and it’s simply amazing with a monotone piano sample. Or how about these lines:

“Fuck a king or queen and all of they loyal subjects
I pull my penis out and I piss on they shoes in public”

“Goonies vs. E.T.” is probably my favourite track on the album, music wise. Chaos and high energy.

In ”Walking in the Snow” Killer Mike and El-P call out police brutality and warn those who blindly follow leaders.

On ““JU$T,” they team up with Zack de la Rocha and Pharrell Williams for a full on attack on the money and justice system. Pure brillians and amazing lyrics. This is the track I would put on a mixtape if I could only chose one. Read more about the track here!

To me, this is the best album of 2020 so far and a must have. The total playtime around 40 minutes is just perfect. The vinyl versions seems to be released in September and I will grab that one quickly.
