7thBoro.com Premiere: Tha Soloist ft Canibus, King Magnetic & Hayze – How Many Shots (Prod C-Lance) (Single)
Tha Soloist is back at it again…but he decided to bring along a few heavy hitters this time around for his new single, “How Many Shots”, produced by C-Lance. The track starts off with a poem by the late great Oscar Brown Jr. then cuts off as the beat hits, allowing Canibus to display his legendary tone and skill over C-Lance’s violin and choir fueled soundscape. Enter DJ PhiLogic, who provides the hook by doing what he does best…cuts, something I personally look forward to hearing on these hardcore hip-hop joints. King Magnetic joins the massacre with his usual raw flow and delivery, detailing life on the streets, perfectly narrating true stories and sticking with the track’s concept. The third verse brings in Tha Soloist, as he manages to still drop jewels over the heavy drum work. The final verse is cleverly packed with Notorious B.I.G. song titles by way of New Zealand’s up and coming emcee, Hayze, who has only been crafting verses for less than a year, but attacks it with the ferocity of a wild beast. This is a perfect song to play at high volume. Something for the hardcore hip-hop fans worldwide. Enjoy.
