Super Wise Rap Burglars

As usual, the real story is with street-level independents for decent new rap. A couple of new Nature Sounds releases have some gritty material worth checking out – the digital-only release of Natural Selections 2.0 delivers a good assortment of shit on there, in particular a new burner from RA The Rugged Man who continues his winning streak and leaky-leak flow with “Super”. There also seems to be another misguided attempt by Little Brother to get at Bol on “Fan Mail”, as well as some new Beatnuts material and that dope Pete Rock / D-Block combo.

A couple of the Wu related cuts will also appear on the soon-to-released Wu-Tang and Friends Unreleased albums from the vaults of Mathematics, who combines some of his trademark unorthodox remixes to some old favorites as well as some never-heard demo work and some up-and-comers. Ghostface gets pick of the bunch with his tear-jerking performance over a blunted soul backdrop on the remix to “Wise”, narrowly edging out the lo-fi “Rap Burglars” which sounds like Raekwon and Deck rapped into the headphones of a four-track cassette before spilling beer on it.
