Detroit MC Buff 1 and LA’s DJ Rhettmatic have joined forces to create the newest hip hop supergroup on the block called Crown Royal. Buff 1 is no stranger to the microphone. The Detroit representer has rocked with his Ann Arbor crew the Athletic Mic League as well as releasing two solo albums “Pure” and “There’s Only One.” DJ Rhettmatic is no stranger to the game either. Being part of the World Famous Beat Junkies and the DJ for the Visionaries, Rhettmatic has been putting in work in the hip hop game for years. Their newest offering to the world also called “Crown Royal” is set to drop December 7th via A-Side Worldwide.
Crown Royal’s first single “We Gotcha” is a perfect example of what’s to come from the rest album as Buff gives you their thesis on why they do what they do with the line “all ya’ll that’s who we rock for.” “Looking For Answers” digs into what’s going on in the world today and “The Chosen Show” is an all star posse cut featuring MED, Tres Styles, Fashawn, Marvwon, Bishop Lamont, Guilty Simpson, Ras Kass, One Be Lo and Chino XL. The entire album brings you back to the good ole days of boom bap hip hop with one producer and one MC, so if that’s what your cup of tea is you can’t go wrong with Crown Royal.
The self-titled album will be available Dec. 7. Pre-order on iTunes.
