The In Crowd is En Fuego


Reasons that Kidz in the Hall's The In Crowd could possibly be the year's top joint thus far and why you should go out or log on and cop that sh*t:

-One MC, one DJ/Producer, and they still call themselves a group (think Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Gangstarr, Eric B & Rakim.
-The MC, Naledge shows that he is already one of the top MCs in the game, not the proverbial "up and comer." He is the rap Chris Paul.
-Collabos galore: Guilty Simpson, Black Milk, Phonte of Little Brother (is he the "underground" version of Lil Wayne; on damn near everyone's albums?), Skyzoo, Camp Lo (yes, that Camp Lo), and Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes (don't front, I heard dude on Clinton Sparks' show the other day and he knows his shit.)
-"The Blackout" features DJ GI Joe and is one some straight hard hitting beats. A perfect jump off to the album, think "Boon Dox" from EPMD or Ghostface's "Iron Maiden."
-The duo is on Duck Down Records.
-The first single, "Driving Down the Block" is the first indie rap single to hit MTV's TRL in probably forever. Had mad 16 year olds screaming for the Masta Ace sample from when they were stuffing baby food down their throats.
-Mad pop culture rhyme references: Kimbo Slice, NASCAR, The Next Top Model, and David Blaine among others.
-"Driving Down the Block" features not just one ill-remix with Pusha T and Bun B but a second remix with El-P. Check the latter HERE.
-Requisite Duck Down posse cut with Buckshot and Sean Price.
-The duo rep Penn, not the penitentiary, but the University of Pennsylvania, where they met and formed the group.
-Producer/DJ Double-O assembles a collection of tracks that is hard to define under one broad rap umbrella, crafting a perfect blend of joints.
-Naledge can spit a conscious verse in one track, switch up some interpersonal reflections in another ("Inner Me"), throw in some crafty punchlines and metaphors, brag about his swagger, get all lovey ("Love Hangover") and make you nod ya head all in one album.
