The Slaughterhouse x Wu-Tang Clan crossover we never knew we needed, Gravitas fuses two of hip-hop’s cinematic universes through this union of two of their most perilously underrated representatives. No stranger to formidable team-ups, having slayed on album-length joints with Frost Gamble and Statik Selektah, KXNG Crooked finds a powerful peer in skilled Shaolin beatsmith Bronze Nazareth. “I Can Still Remember...” leaps into action with its exploitation movie soundtrack and rapid bars, while “Change Ur Beliefs” reminisces on a rap legacy over soaring, soulful production. Guests include powerhouse vets like DMX and RZA alongside current boom-bap killers 38 Spesh and BENNY THE BUTCHER.
