ALBUM: SHOW YOU SUCK X THE HOOD INTERNET PRESENT AIR CREDITS "BROADCASTED"

Chicago's Show You Suck and The Hood Internet solo musically are good in their own respects, so it's only imaginable what greatness resulted from them teaming up to create Air Credits "Broadcasted." We had the chance to check out the listening party set to fog and a fantastic installation light show to elevate the experience. The album has an 80s', futuristic, video game feel streamlined with hard hitting hip hop beats, horns, and excellent production, a definite showcasing what each artist brings to the table.

Show You Suck is known for his hype lyricism that weaves real talk with play. This is the guy who made an entire album about his love for pizza, and it was the hardest thing you ever heard. Mixing trap beats, trip hop, drum machines, a jazz influnence from The Hood Internet and "adult swim like" pop culture, Show You Suck goes from rapping about watching Friends, iPods, JNCO jeans, to touching on police brutality, and using water as a motif, this is quite possibly some of his best work, and feels grand.

"All I Need" comes in two parts, each completely different. "All I Need (Part I)" feels larger than life and feels like an anthem of self realization and actualization. The deep drums with the chorals and synth are layered with important questions and statements, "Who needs abs when you got a t shirt this fucking cool?" "Who needs a password to Hulu Plus girl when I got you? I need Alf back on the tube, I need a memory card from a PS2, I need cops to stop and frisk and shoot to feel what they do and put it all on the news" "Lord knows we all need to breathe."

Part II hits you with the horns and disco vibes and is considerably also an anthem in a completely different way. The song feels like something out of The Get Down, walking the streets during Brooklyn Crooklyn Days meets "Gettin Jiggy With It" The song switches up in the middle for a trap twerk dance break on some Major Lazor ish. "Passport" nods to Kanye on mentions of "everything's foreign and 808s, or quite possibly Chief Keef who also has an affinity for foreign things. Other notable songs are "No Limit," "QBRG/Quick," with the Daft Punk vibes, and "Gear Shiftin" for when you wanna hit the folks. And of course "Westside," with its beach meets steppin vibes and chorus repitition of "all the water gone," and "No Water" rounding out the water motif.

Make sure you check out "Broadcasted," it's available for free at Bandcamp.They are going on tour with Minnesota's SIMS the month of November. When you see Show You Suck make sure you call him rap god.
