Queens emcees World’s Fair show off their skills with their Bastards Of The Party album, released for $free.99 via Fools Gold. The six member crew raps effortlessly on the 13-track project, proving that New York rap is not dead. You may or may not have heard from the collective before but they have been making noise for a while which lead to their deal with Fool’s Gold. The clique has an old-school retro feel complete with skits and plenty of boom-baps, but their energy and their aesthetic are definitely products of this millennium. The press release actually describes it as “futuristic boom-bap.” That should be taken with a grain of salt, but it shouldn’t be entirely dismissed. The only real way to assess the claim is to listen for yourself. Go for it.
Note: though this was released for free, Fools Gold has consistently called it a debut album. Danny Brown‘s XXX and Run the Jewels‘ Run the Jewels were also labeled as albums when they were released for free. This is important to keep in mind because it indicates a confidence in these artists’ presentations of themselves. Although we love mixtapes, we have to admit that a lot of people use the mixtape label as a preemptive shield against possible (and sometimes probable) negative reception. So when artists call their projects albums, in a sense, they are taking full credit for the projects. That should be appreciated.
