Black Collar - Black Is The New Black (album)

With the constant stream of new music coming in on a daily basis it gets easy to miss a project and overlook ALOT of good music. BITNB is one of those projects that got lost in the mix but deserves to be shared. Dropped in Oct of last year the production on this album is a strong mix of classic hip hop, dope turntableism and bass driven atmospheric tracks. The Chicago trio each have individual styles ranging from baritone staccato to higher pitched smoothness. On the high paced "4,3,2,1" joint and "All in Together" Black Collar support each others rhymes and hooks working together much like west-coast crews J5 or Freestyle Fellowship do. This def a slept on project that deserves the Sunday Throw Back revisit.
