IRON WIGS ft. Roc Marciano: Bally Animals & Rugbys

Dueling Experts: Dark Ninjas + LP Stream

Another rugged gem from Dueling Experts (Verbal Kent and Recognize Ali), following on from the release of their debut LP at the end of last month. The Chicago and Ghana representatives have opted for a single producer on the album, namely underground legend, Lord Beatjitzu, and together they have cooked up an album which feels steeped in that rough around the edges, DIY, 90’s dingy basement studio vibe. It also helps that both Verbal and Ali are impeccable wordsmiths. The video for Dark Ninjas can be seen above and the full self-titled album can be heard below, with downloads available via Bandcamp.

If that doesn’t pique your interest, then I don’t know what will. The first single from the self-titled album is available to stream below and pre-orders are available now via Bandcamp.
