KRS-ONE and Bumpy Knuckles - Royalty Check

For old school artists in the the game today, it is all about adaptation. Many artists have languished in the wake of the conventional record industry going down the shitter but Bumpy Knuckles aka Freddie Foxxx is not one of them. On the heels of having the highest selling independent hip-hop release a number of years ago, Bumpy has been in the lab, recording a ton of material that has recently started to trickle down the pike. The first release Leaks Vol. 1 has been setting the interwebs on fire and now the ante is being raised with Royalty Check, the long rumored collabo record with KRS-One.

As you might surmise with these two lyrical titans on the same mike in the same room, Royalty Check is pretty fucking bananas. It was recorded back in 2008 for the most part, but it shits all over most of the other hip-hop that has come out in the last couple years. It comes courtesy of Canadian indie 682 Records, who also appear to be releasing a new Grand Puba record. Sounds good to me. It should to you, too. Pick up Royalty Check here from 682.
