I already explained the reasons for my hype about the forthcoming Career Crooks album, from Zilla Rocca & Small Pro; a project that has been anticipated by fans of the duo since they started talking it up many moons ago. Now the time is nearly upon us, but in the meantime they have only gone and released a whole other EP for us to enjoy while these last few days pass by. Read the rest of this entry »

Always a pleasure to see an album you’ve been waiting for finally make it to the masses. Zilla Rocca and Small Professor have been building the hotly anticipated Career Crooks album for a while now and the hype has been deservedly building throughout.

South Philly MC, Zilla Rocca, returns with a new single, inspired by the noir detective novels he is so fond of. It’s actually one novel in particular – The Song is You by Megan Abbott – and deals with that staple of all murky stories: the femme fatale.

When one of my favourite MCs redoes one of my favourite tracks, it’s like the universe has aligned itself just for me.

You can stream the track below and keep those ears and eyes peeled for his LP with Small Pro dropping soon. Read the rest of this entry »

Zilla Rocca dropped this new track the other day, as a homage to the Five Percenter style of rap he came up with when he was starting out as an MC.

My homie Zilla Rocca has an album coming out soon with his friend and frequent collaborator Small Pro and this week they released a video from the project. No surprises it’s dope as fuck.
Going by the name Career Crooks, the duo have used a Don Draper quote as the inspiration for this track: “We’re going to sit at our desks and keep typing while the walls fall down around us because we’re creative – the least important, most important thing there is”. The album is due out early next year; more news on that soon.

Loving this new one from the united minds of Lushlife, Zilla Rocca and R. Stevie Moore. Moore provides the vaguely surreal hook, while the two MCs trade bars on an Avalanches-inspired beat from Lushlife.
