I don’t know why event inspired music excites me, it just does. The mixtape features a solid underground cast of emcees, none more intriguing as NY Knicks guard, Iman Shumpert on the last track. He’s not half bad (footage of Iman rapping), other tracks feature professional rappers: Action Bronson, Slum Village, Vince Staples, Michael Uzowuru, Chip Tha Ripper, Pro Era. Very patriotic stuff, represent the stripes.
Leave it to the Grind King to drop the first anthem for the London Olympics. Mistah F.A.B. teams up with London’s Mega & Mayhem of S.A.S (formerly of Dipset acclaim). The track is high energy featuring predictable references to the city and the Olympics. You can bet your bottom dollar that American athletes will be bumping this while pocketing their gold. If you don’t, I’m sure the Grind King will gladly accept the buck.
