Cuban Pete x Bo Faat - Crown Jewels (Review)
Cuban Pete has joined forces with German beatsmith Bo Faat to drop his latest EP "Crown Jewels" on his C75 Live imprint.
For the Gram
Hall of Fame
Hard 2 Smile
Cuban Pete goes in, guns blazing with this collaborative EP that's more reminscent in style and sound to the US Underground than UK Hip Hop but he does so with an effortless, laid back flow, vibing over these head nodding beats supplied by Bo Faat. He's also enlisted some really solid and varied styles through the guests featured and he impressively manages to go toe to toe with Wu Tang affiliate Heaven Razah (formely Hell Razah) on "Hard 2 Smile". It all sounds very organic and not like a cut and paste effort like a lot of UK/US collabs seem to which leads to a very comprehensive and enjoyable project overall.
