Grand Killa Con (Luke Sick & Brycon) – “Hemmed Part One (Casualties)”

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

I was gonna write something up but Foul Mouth Jerk has a true gift with words:

“You know what seems to be happening a lot in recent years? Super Groups. Conversely you know what seems to be lost to the annals of history? Rapper/Producer albums. Not the Kanye West “a producer that raps” type, I mean one consistent, cohesive musical vision throughout an entire album done by 1 MC and his DJ/Producer or production team. Up until about 1993 it’s pretty much how all rap albums were made, these days not so much. Well you know who’s combining these two seemingly dynamically opposed concepts? No, you probably don’t because you don’t stay up on ill shit the way I do. But the answer is Grand Killa Con, a joint effort from Gurp City All Star Luke Sick, the lyricist behind projects like Sacred Hoop & Grand Invincible, and Brycon, a producer whose worked with everyone from Action Bronson to Living Legends to Masta Ace.

As a super group I’m gonna go ahead & rate them firmly right between The Hot Boys & The Traveling Wilburys. As a rapper/producer combo, I would put them somewhere in the neighborhood of a Marley Marl & Kane. Their first leak ”Hemmed pt.1″ is the beginning of their run up to this summer’s release of their full-length “Year of the Tre Bag” and is accompanied by a video that’s as grimy as the album title suggests.”
