Key City Posts C.S. Rucker Mixtape, Plans Hip-Hop Night At Mokah Tomorrow
Andres from the Key City Crew passes along a great compilation, The Hungry Kid, featuring Albuquerque/Dallas rapper C.S. Rucker. Rucker shares the mic with fellow Dallasite Dustin Cavazos and Chicago's Kid Static over beats by Drixxe, Kid Rolex, Freon, Licks and more. Rucker reveals a real Wu influence with his dense, wordy, sometimes indecipherable braggadoccio and metaphors. The ghettotech- and electro-influenced beats are no less cluttered and choppy, a nice change of pace from the minimal midtempo beats that dominate Dallas hip-hop lateley. Plus, when's the last time you heard a mixtape open with a harmonica solo? Download it here and enjoy.
You can check Rucker out tomorrow night at Mokah (2803 Taylor St.) in Deep Ellum, along with Ekzile, Librado of the Elze and Faded DJs.
