Reviews – Supah Smash Bros – Stoplight City
The Supah Smash Bros. are out of the Middle of the map from a spot known as Kokomo Indiana. I immediately noticed how much they rep their area, the first track on the new album Stoplight City is US 31. Another thing I noticed and liked was their distaste for mainstream music with the song F Da Mainstream where they speak on the repetitive nature of the industry. “Fuck the mainstream all I hear everyday is the same thing!” Even though I interviewed many mainstream artists throughout my career, I always made it a point to rep the underground.
Another thing I related to was the nostalgia, these guys were speaking about all the shit I grew up on with the track 80’s Baby. I was born in the 70s but grew up in the 80s and automatically took a trip back in time, so this track definitely worked if they were going for that effect. The production on there gave me the same type of feeling, the beats were hitting hard and had that synth 80s vibe. The sound quality was on point as well with the vast majority of the project mastered by D-Payne.
The Hellraiser himself, Mastamind was all over this album. He was on 3 tracks with Nightmarez being my favorite, they all brought that Wicket Shit on this one. They also had features from Skitzo, Dirty White Mike, SuiZid3PaKt and Project Born who was on my favorite track off the album Midwest Massacre. The beat hits hard and the Middle of the Map is represented to the fulled, a good blend of Michigan and Indiana. I can’t really complain, I was impressed! Aside from maybe a couple tracks I enjoyed the majority of this album. The Middle was repepd, the Wicketshit was repped, the features were dope, and the sounds were original and fresh!
