Injury Reserve - Injury Reserve (Album)
For the past 6 months we’ve been giving tastes of this project from Injury Reserve. They’ve slowly given us singles with super cool visuals to go along side of them. They’ve nabbed some of the coolest cats on the come up for the features. Guys like Jpegmafia, Amine, Rico Nasty, Freddie Gibbs, Cakes Da Killa,DRAM, Tony Velour & Dylan Brady. Parker Corey, their one of a kind producer jumped on Mass Appeal and did a Rhythm Roulette last year as well which garnered one of the wonkiest coolest beats we’ve had in the entire series.
As soon as the singles started rolling through it was pretty obvious this was going to be one of the coolest hip hop projects in a while. I love the sound that these guys have. The tracks have such an awesome Clipse feel to them. Just minimal beats and destructive verses with some enormous weight and grit behind them.
”Jailbreak The Tesla” is hands down the coolest damn hip hop beat I’ve heard on a full release project in years. The fact that you got guys as established as this and Amine getting down on a beat like this shows how comfortable this generation is becoming in doing their own thing and creating their own sound.
This weekend there has been a flood of new projects from some pretty incredible artists and this is probably my favourite of the lot. It’s some must listen music for sure.
