Living in Chapel Hill, we have the luxury of being surrounded by loads of great local music. One of such outlets that is sometimes forgotten is Hall of Justus in Durham.
Known primarily, of course, for Little Brother, the Hall features a whole gang of talent that is often left overshadowed. Three associates – Jozeemo, Joe Scudda and Chaundon – have, however, teamed up with half of the all-mighty and awesome Little Brother – Rapper Big Pooh – to form a North Carolina version of Slaughterhouse.
Performing under the Reservoir Dogs moniker, the group’s self-titled mixtape tackles some popular beats by Souls of Mischief, Jamie Foxx, Wu-Tand Clan, Kanye West, DJ Khaled and more, as well as some original numbers.
While the majority of the tracks feature all four emcees, each does get his own single. All four can easily do the rap thing by themselves, but the fun of this whole project is having them perform together.
This tape is rappers going hard over some nice tracks. Definitely a must have for NC hip-hop diehards.
What’s Good?: “D.R.E.A.M.,” “Quentin Tarantino,” “Next Selection” “3 Words”
