Bus Driver and Nocando are Flash Bang Grenada - 10 Haters CD
Hellfyre Club presents 10 Haters, the debut album from Flash Bang Grenada. Composed of manic wordsmith Busdriver and Low End Theory resident Nocando, Flash Bang Grenada is a brilliant combination of two experienced and immensely talented Los Angeles MCs.
From track one on 10 Haters it is clear that this collaboration has been a long time coming. In fact the two trade off lyrics so effortlessly, Nocando's unflappable attack balancing Busdriver's off-the-wall delivery so perfectly, it's obvious these two MCs are not strangers to each other's style. Together they weave intricate patterns, at times tip-toeing and at times stomping, through impressive soundscapes provided by an all-star cast - eight producers in all. Despite the eclectic production, fellow Low End hero Nosaj Thing and LA beat scene wunderkind Shlohmo to name a few, a dark, cohesive backdrop is painted for these two MCs to drop bombs on.
And drop bombs they do. Viciously self-aware, Nocando and Busdriver take turns delivering a brilliant, ironic, and very funny commentary on a variety of topics. The opener "Good Cop, Bad Cop" showcases their brilliant one-upmanship, and "In a Perfect World" is a hilarious, banging collaboration with Open Mike Eagle that is best listened to windows down cruising around the neighborhood.
