Six-man Rap collective World’s Fair — comprised of Jeff Donna, Prince SAMO, Cody B. Ware, as well as Lansky Jones, Remy Banks, and Nasty Nigel of the group Children of the Night — rep Queens hard. Like some kind of new millennium iteration of the Beatnuts they’re on some drunken, rowdy, punch your dad in the face type rhyme writing over really bangin’ beats shit.
I’m not sure that was best showcased by “’96 Knicks”, the first single from their Fool’s Gold debut ‘Bastards of the Party’, but the album sure goes hard with ill beats, dope rhymes and catchy hooks. And after knocking it all week even “’96 Knicks” makes sense in the flow of the rest of the record which plays out like a bit of a half-assed concept album of sorts.
Seriously, if a now-school take on the sounds of The Beatnuts, Cru, and Terror Squad, mixed with the of-the-moment styles of Action Bronson, Timeless Truth, and Roc Marciano appeal to you then you should download it. You’ll enjoy it.
