In a period of turbulent times, mass shootings, racial tension, political change, E. Smitty & Chino XL hit this one right on the head. Backed by dark, melodic production from Super producer E. Smitty, Chino XL delivers a deep message, expressing his struggle & frustration with the state of being of the world & humanity.
“Unmericifully, introduce you to death personally, lock you in a cell, in the ocean & then submerge the key”
Chino paints the vivid image of suffocation & with each line leaves your grasping for breathe. This track serves as the first single off of E. Smitty’s upcoming album “Hip Hop Time Capsule,” a project that Smitty created to help bridge the gap between both old & new generations of Hip-Hop.
The project features an all star cast of Hip-Hop legends and young generation newcomers, with the purpose to build unity between the youth and the veterans, proving our genre has no age, shape, nor color.
Expect a diverse melting pot of production & sounds that both the venerable and the contemporary can relate to.
