St. Louis emcee’s Jah Orah and KD Assassin will be filtrating the air waves and stages with their brand of what KD has dubbed Street Hop with the release of their brand new full length LP entitled Used To Be Bobby and Darrick, released on indie label Systematic Muzick Presents today!
They come out swinging immediately with some seriously infectious boom bap on the DJ Reminise produced title track! From there the soundscape gets real flavorful from the bass heavy ‘Anti Trap Muzick’ to the banging, blog buzzing Tony Baines produced single ‘BruisHer’ featuring 106 & Park freestyle champ Tef Poe! No cliched women dissing tracks here with the soulfully funky ‘Real G’ and unintended “manthem” ‘It’s Not The Same’ which spawned the video shot by Prince Ea and was featured on the popular weekly web series Snoop Dogg’s Underground Heat. The wave continues from the West Coast vibe of ‘Stay’ featuring Aceyalone to the reggae infused signature production of InStrumenTaL on ‘No Way’.
Fellow Skinny Gorilla and partner in “krhyme”, MC923, shows up & out throughout the album along with the likes of Black Spade, Bo Dean, and Dharma Jean. Definitely not your average.
