Next to Lucinda Williams, what other act has suffered from label problems as much as this Virginia Beach hip-hop duo? Their nine-year career has seen them go through seven labels, for which they have four albums to show for it. As with Lucinda, it’s meant that they’ve had to take a few years off—in this case, getting their clothing line on. Coming back finally last year with Til the Casket Drops, they have a lot to live up to with their previous album and they almost manage, at least on record. With Freddie Gibbs, NinjaSonik, and XV.
