New Rap City; a collaboration project from Chron Burgundy & Huck Finn (co-founder of Run JHB). The concept behind this EP is set to take listeners on somewhat of a nostalgic trip down memory lane, as the project’s theme is based around mid to late 90’s movies.
The EP’s production was handled by OB-1, except for the bonus cut which had an unknown producer by take the board. The most we know about this unknown beat-smith is his name, Lenin. Could this be part reason they decided to unleash the “bonus” cut as the first single off the project? Generally, this tactic is not used. Perhaps the duo are looking to help promote Lenin with this marketing scheme?
Based on hearing the New Jack City single, listeners can surely expect a number of raps highlighting the trials & tribulations which have earned them the right to celebrate life, whilst maintaining the flamboyant and braggadocios bars. The EP is expected to have content touching on a lot of highs, with minimal lows. Various samples from the movies can be heard throughout the project, but it was kept to a minimum (which could be a good thing, if they wanted to keep music aspect of things).
This should be an exciting step in Chron’s career being this is his first collaboration project. Huck Finn has released a small online project with his brother Riky Rick. When asked to comment on why we did not see Riky’s name on the feature line up, Chron simply stated “We are our own artists. At no time do we want people to assume we need to ride on anyone’s wave. Perhaps in the future, we will get a 16 from Riky, but for now, we wanna show case, us”.
Expect to hear the full EP before the end of 2016, with no set date as yet. But, based on the track list being finalized, we can only assume it is ready to launch.
