If the name Born Infinite rings a bell, you might remember him as being one half of Shambala, one of DC’s most pioneering rap groups from earlier last decade. I remember the dude as my neighbor from back in the day. Although Shambala has been on hiatus for a while (The Lotus Of… still get spins however), member Born Infiniate is back with a new solo project.

Born takes on UK dubstep producer Joker’s Purple City, which should be a template for any rapper in 2010. The dubstep mix has its roots in East Coast hip-hop, and is accessible enogh to slide in on any mixtape. However, it’s too late, Born destroys this instrumental, and I’m forward to more tracks from the dude.
