Once upon a rhyme transatlantic rap collaborations between the U.S and the U.K meant A.G's studio scrap acapellas over Aim's lumpen Mancunian trip-hop or DJ Ivory trying to talk up his own P Brothers productions by claiming frigging Milano is a more talented than any rapper from outside the Tri-State. Fast forward to 2015 and we now have that The Purist producer bloke atoning for the sins of his forefathers by getting a listenable song out of post-XXXDanny Brown, doing TREE deep cuts, and recording a track with Roc Marciano that sounds like a legitimate Works Of Marc beat you could ride out to 'pon U.K road in a 1953 Eldorado convertible as long as you were willing to brave the perma-drizzle and fuck up your suspension on the combination of potholes & speedbumps.
"Range Ro', display the suede raincoat
Hop out the Rover like a stage coach
Like one of Jesse James folks"
