Molecules & Showbiz - A Bronx Tale (EP)
BX Hip-Hop Vets Cary on Tradition with Golden Aged Beats and Rhymes
Given that it shares its name with a classic crime film, it's only fitting that A Bronx Tale opens with a quote from the movie and follows in its mafioso footsteps. You can thank 'Cules' boot-to-your-
That's particularly true on the EP's other single, "Hardcore." The track features Molecules sharing the booth with Dres of Black Sheep, who the Bronx rapper credits for jumpstarting his career many moons ago. The two gel just as perfectly here as they did over 20 years ago with their tough-guy bars, thanks in part to Showbiz's teeth gnashed instrumental tying it all together. And then there's "Good Life," an anthem for anyone living life to its fullest, and "Heist," a cinematic narrative that we won't spoil here.
At its core, A Bronx Tale is the answer for anyone searching for some rugged Boom bap in 2017. 'Cules and Show aren't chasing trends on here, or even necessarily rejecting them; they're just too cats from the Golden Era staying true to themselves. What more do you need?
A Bronx Tale is now available through al major digital retailers and streaming platforms via Legion Records, and can be purchased on CD or vinyl, courtesy of Fat Beats.
