So, the Stu Hustlah & Lil' Juu album dropped yesterday, and even if you're not a fan of low-budget regional variations on Jacka-core mobb music it's still worth celebrating that someone can release an album with a cover like this in 2014 without it coming off as some Noisey-sponsored dress-up Tumblr-rap. That's because you can only really pull off such a cover if your whole aesthetic rejects the 97% of Rap music which isn't C-Bo, the Mob Figaz, and Ampichino; an aesthetic I find awfully appealing in the era where individuals with no kind of common interest like Young Thug & Wale end up on the same song together.
Truthfully, though, I haven't got around to checking the album yet because I'm still stuck on that ridiculous Ampichino joint my bork brother from another mother Lars posted t'other day:
You can look all you want but ain't no God in the sky
I try to run from this pain by buying jewellery
Fuck it, when I die let my enemies do my eulogy"
Ampichino - Eulogy
(From the forthcoming The Eulogy album; 2014)
