Identity-free emcee Billy Woods is easily one of the best rappers in the game right now. ‘Race Music’, his collaboration with Elucid as Armand Hammer continued the tradition of outstanding music released by he and his Backwoodz Studioz.
“The Rent is Too Damn High”, where Woods and Elucid elucidate the realities of tenement living, was a definite highlight from the LP. And the video, courtesy of director William Bodega and shooter Anna Stypko, provides some pretty ground level imagery to accompany the sounds.
Cop ‘Race Music’ now on the Backwoodz Studioz label, and watch out for an EP from the group soon.
Oh, and since I apparently forgot to post it when it dropped this spring, peep the video for “Willie Bosket”.
