The Hurt Everybody boys switched things up for the month April, showing us they'll always find new ways to surprise us. This time around they did so by not uploading a track, but rather appearing on a handful of guest-verses for a bunch of different artists.
The songs were carefully curated and created among close affiliates, keeping their marquee synergy intact while showing us a distinct side we probably would not have heard in their own releases.
Kicking things off, Supa Bwe and SIDEWALKKAL added their own take on Spooky Black's (who Complex called "a motherfucking Internet monster with the voice of an angel.") "Without You." Supa's versatility is on full display here as he distances himself from a rambunctious sound and explores a more ambient sonic landscape produced by Greaf. It also introduces his fans to the viral sensation Lil Spook, who you should really check out sooner than later.
"Mahjik" is a collaboration between Supa and Auggie The 9th that reminds us how lyrically underrated both of these artists are. No hook, straight bars with spirited deliveries. What else can you ask for?
"Frequency" finds Jarred A.G. and Carl putting together a smooth and melodious record over a mellow beat by Jay Retro, while SIDEWALKKAL makes another appearance with Supa plus Blakkass Westley for a drill-inspired joint called "FUCK BEING POSITIVE." Talk about making a statement.
Finally, "In Seoul" is the latest release and also my favorite. This joint has so many layers of greatness; Supa makes a perfect analogy between Cuba's embargo and a relationship, Khori⁴ establishes himself as an artist to watch with an impressive flow and Carl holds clean-up duties with a verse for the ages. The way he nonchalantly philosophizes on life makes it hard to believe he's only 17.
