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.
