Fresh kill from the Wrecking Crew. More black-clad pulp bangers pulsing out of the badlands between Motherless Brooklyn, The Big Sleep, The Fantastic Four and Charlton Heston before he burned his b-r-a-i-n for the NRA.  Curly Castro channels his inner Robert Thorn on “Soylent Green,” a track excised from his forthcoming Fidel, where he pairs his afro-futurist paranoia to his sci-fi love jones. I don’t know what to say about the British rapper who does the last 16 bars, other than that it is a British person rapping not named Wiley, Dizzee or Klashnekoff. You understand.

Meanwhile, the Has-Lo remix of Zilla Rocca’s “Michael Caine Glasses” ought to be mandatory for anyone who enjoyed Cancer 4 Cure or Skelethon or an old fashioned. It’s erudite and eerie, a fresh haircut and a closed fist. All in the service of channeling the man who brought dignity to the cockney accent. They are the rap game, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
