(Mixtape) - Inspectah Deck - INS The Rebel : Live & Spittin'

Inspectah Deck sharpens his sword...

Inspectah Deck has not always enjoyed the same solo success as some of his Wu brothers, but his razor-sharp flow, aggressive delivery and smart word play have held him in high esteem and made him a favourite among Wu-Heads. No doubt Deck always delivers with the lyrics, he is an uncompromising, relentless MC and one of the sharpest Shaolin Swordsmen. Twenty-Two years in the game, Rollie Fingers is still swingin through ya town like ya neighbourhood Spider Man.

Decks last few projects have been fire, 2013's collaboration album with 7L & Esoteric "Czarface" is by far one of my favourite albums from the last couple of years. This shit took it right back to a sound that has been missing in hip hop, particularly for the Wu fans. That 90's shit with the beats and rhymes, - "That Whole Era" as Cilvaringz described it at the recent one and only "Once Upon A Time In Shaolin" listening session - but I'm not getting into that shit here. It looks like that album will now never be heard, Czarface definitely comes close to the sound of true 90s hip hop. The Inspectah put in some good work on "A Better Tomorrow" and has recently released the free "Cynthia's Son" tape which he dedicated to his mother. I think the tape is dope as fuck and has been slightly slept on by a few. With Masta Killa's "Selling My Soul", Ghost dropping "Sour Soul" and Rae's #ThrowbackThursday tracks, there has been a shift within the Wu paying homage to these old school soul tracks. Ghost has been doing it for years and it suits his flow, this is Decks go at it - which he does really well, swinging his sword the only way Deck can. If you have not heard "Cynthia's Son" go and download that shit - seriously! This tape, INS The Rebel : Live & Spittin is different from the other shit I've been posting. It has the audio from a full live Inspectah Deck solo show, mixed with some of the best and most memorable freestyles from his career along with a couple of reflective interviews where Deck gives his views on everything. Deck is working on putting out a sequel to "Czarface" and his last solo album "The Rebellion", until then check out the tape. Listen above / download below. Peace.
