Brownsville rap hero Sean Price (of the Boot Camp Clik & Heltah Skeltah) teams up with Melbourne, Australia beatmaker M-Phazes, who recently received a high-profile credit on Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (he co-produced the first part of MMLP2’s “Bad Guy”) for ‘Land Of The Crooks‘, a terse, nervy, five-track EP. Intro track “Bag Of Sh*t” contains classic punch-you punchlines such as “I will clap your Kangol,” & enacts a kind of gully Cheech & Chong routine throughout the hilarious track: “The bag with the sh*t got shit on the bag, man“. “Dump In The Gut” slurs a sample of OutKast’s Big Boi on UGK’s “International Player’s Anthem” for the hook, while the title track features mosh-rap legend Billy Danze of M.O.P., New York renaissance rapper Maffew Ragazino, & Dilated Peoples’ DJ Babu’s scratching. And you get two versions of “Murdah Type Thinkin’“, a club-friendly piece of bloop-bap; one version features Roc Marciano & the remix, produced by Small Professor, features Price’s Random Axe partner, Guilty Simpson.
