After a recent opening spot for Blackalicious, I had the pleasure of meeting RobbieSEE and TCtheMC, better known collectively as S.U.A.V.E. Squad. It’d been a while since I’d met heads with the passion, respect and skill these two had, and after a few cyphers between my set and the Blackalicious set, TCtheMC and myself decided to stay in touch. A day or so ago, after a handful of conversations about hip-hop (local and otherwise), Metahuman hit my inbox, and it crystalized everything the duo had been communicating to me perfectly. Much like myself, the duo embraces their southern heritage, but the versatility found in the project screams die-hard hip-hop fans. Every beat on this project is fire, and like the blog entry title says, I’m hard pressed to think of a pair of MCs I wasn’t already aware of spitting at this level. The rhymes, wordplay and topics and intricate, expertly delivered and clearly from the heart, and they resonated immediately with me. I highly recommend checking this one out, and sharing it around for others to do the same.
