Beast Coast Drop Off Their New Album “Escape From New York.”
Prior to their earlier collaborative efforts, Beast Coast was more of a conceptual New York rap supergroup than an actual rap group. For those who don’t know, Beast Coast is comprised of three New York groups — Flatbush Zombies, the Underachievers, and Pro Era, a crew that features frontman Joey Bada$$. They would frequently appear on each other’s records, they did shows together, you’d even catch them from time to time shouting out “Beast Coast” on records, but they didn’t actually function as a rap collective. Over the past year or so, that’s been changing. Today, Beast Coast have dropped their debut project Escape From New York. This is the New York supergroup’s first project and fans have high hopes for it.
Flatbush Zombies member Erick The Architect produced the record and he’s also one of the six rappers who appear on it. (He sings the hazy, patois-laden hook.) While the previous Beast Coast singles were full of anarctic energy. “Snow In The Stadium” takes a more meditative approach and slows things down. The heavy-hitting Caribbean influenced single pays homage to the culture in Flatbush, and it’s got a huge bassline and a more melodious feel. But it still gives all these great rappers chances to flex. Listen to the single and the full album below.
