After hearing the twentytwo single, I’ve been eager for the release of Wolfe & Bear, the collaborative effort featuring Virgil Wolfe and Cunabear on lyrical duty and Vast Ness on production, all representing BearTooth Collective. Luckily for me, the entire project follows the path laid by twentytwo, using lush, mellow production as a bed for lyrics that cover a wide range of topics, feelings and emotions. This is hip-hop that feels like a good conversation with like-minded friends that leaves you feeling better than you did when you arrived. Hopefully, these five songs are just the beginning of something bigger, but for now, be sure to check this one out, share it around, and cop it if you can.

I love it when a plan comes together. After watching the homie Virgil Wolfe build a bond with cunabear and the BearTooth Collective for the past year or two, it comes as no surprise that the two have teamed up with producer vast ness to create Wolfe & Bear. Their first single, twentytwo, is the perfect sonic encapsulation of the trio : the track by vast ness sets the storybook-esque tone beautifully, cunabear makes his presence felt firmly and soundly in the opening verse, and Virgil Wolfe pops up on the track while darting around the rhythm with his signature cleverly textured lines. I’m definitely on board for the Wolfe & Bear EP (coming this August), and you should be too. Pass this single around to help build the buzz.
