B’CE N’ THA BLOODY MONEY: Street of Dreamz II: CS

Four-songer with a rad mix of hip hop and punk. Barbed digs about being Black and unendingly harassed by cops, punk, and more. The tinny, garbage-can-sound of blistering, sloppy punk reminds me of early Beastie Boys or DFL. B’ce’s vocals are shrill as hell, and the whole thing is beyond exuberant. If you want to get moored down in the unending morass of what’s punk and what isn’t, go for it. I’m gonna go listen to this again. Limited to fifty copies, so get jumping. –Keith Rosson (B’ce)
