Sticking to the classic recipe of 1 MC & 1 Producer/DJ, their latest project shows that Dillon & Paten Locke are clearly at the top of their game & the top of the ‘Food Chain’.
Their 2nd LP, ‘Food Chain’ is a musical menagerie of rap running the gamut from grimy to gloomy to glorious. Paten Locke’s elusive loops & dusty grooves lay the foundation for rapper, Dillon to bring his ‘straight talk’ style of writing & delivery. No gimmicks, no punches pulled. Just rugged beats & raw rhyming.
Carefully curated, the guest features salt & peppered throughout the album make the meal complete. It’s an all-star cast consisting of bonafide rap legends (Black Sheep Dres, Count Bass D), modern day hip hop heroes (Homeboy Sandman, Von Pea) & emerging eccentrics (Tone Tank, Willie Evans Jr).
Chock full of interludes, skits & nuggets of comedy, Food Chain is a veritable rap buffet with a little something for everybody. So grab a fork & a FULL PLATE and as Supa Dave West so artfully states, "Pour a bucket of gravy all over yourself and just feel that!"
CD is a double CD (with 2 front covers) packaged with the instrumentals.This will be the only way album instros will be available. Also the CD & Cassette are the complete & unabridged version of the album. Vinyl - abridged version (cutting out certain skits & a few songs to give the vinyl maximum punch) also includes a vinyl-only version of ‘Modern Man’s Waltz’ a special piano solo instrumental version.
