Let the Beat Bop : The Wrecking Crew Gets Rammellzeed

Get Funky in the Place.

Whether your tastes run more towards Juice Crew’s “Symphony” or Odd Future’s “Oldie,” there’s something to the posse cut. I’d argue that the posse cut is the best way to let you know who goes the hardest.  You work harder to impress your friends than your enemies.

Enter “Rammellzeed,” the second single from Curly Castro and Fakts One’s forthcoming Restroy & Debuild (street date of April 21). Whereas CC’s debut, FIDEL, skewed towards the autobiographical, the Philly representative opts for a more collaborative approach here.

Calling on his co-conspirators Has-Lo, Dewey Decibel, Davd Little and Zilla Rocca, the Philly crew pays homage to the 1983 classic “Beat Bop” by Rammellzee + K-Rob. Non-sequitur, stream of consciousness raps that run the gamut from punchlines to blunted nonsense. Fakts channels early boom bap, the lyrics are rubbery,  and Dewey Decibel kicks in the artwork, a tribute to the Basquiat original.
