Hard-working producer/DJ Teck-Zilla is not resting on his oars as he returns with another posse cut that brings together some unexpected names for a unified lyrical assault front.
The song in question, titled “The Best Emcees” is a brooding cinematic cut that brings Ghanaian/American lyricist Recognize Ali, UK’s Da Flyy Hooligan, Detroit’s super lyricist Elzhi (of SlumVillage fame), and emerging rapper/actor RX The Rapper.
The aptly titled record sees the rappers bring out the proverbial big guns and each solidifying their status as trusted lyricists in their own right. Recognize Ali opens up the floor with his gruff vocals and verbal body blows as he shoots at the opposition while giving props to a certain legendary Queensbridge who paved the way. This is followed by RX The Rapper’s animated hook that reminds us that other emcees are fish food when it comes to this crew.
We then head to the UK courtesy of Da Flyy Hooligan who blends flashy bravado raps with his distinct UK underground swagger draped in Donna Karen while cruising the ends in a regal Aston Martin.
The last verse is anchored perfectly by Elzhi who points out the flaws of certain enemies who try to ice him but he skated off with 8 figures. The fun doesn’t stop here as the revered lyricist raises the ante with each bar as he ends with this quote, “My mind is so woke, I’m laughing at sleep” right before Teck-Zilla flips the beat into a groovy jazz section to close it out.
“The Best Emcees” is Teck-Zilla’s follow-up single to the previously released “LosTtres Grandes” which featured John Jigg$, Revalation and Nolan The Ninja.
