Ruste Juxx and DJ Mercilless join seasoned Canadian emcee Righteous in “What Is.” The single/video is the first release from his new project titled ‘and the DEVIL is…’
DJ Mercilless sets the video off with his mastery and goes in with cuts and scratches while Righteous is crate digging. His enticing blend of clever punchlines and descriptive wordplay capture the essence of Hip Hop, and the roles of emcees and DJs. What is an emcee if he can’t rap, what is a DJ if he can’t scratch echos through the track as do verses from Righteous and Ruste Juxx. The duo pays homage to the culture and founding fathers without sounding dated. This is a must-listen/watch not only for Hip Hop purists but for upcoming Hip Hop artists as well. Watch the video and stream the album below.
Stream the album ‘and the DEVIL is’ below which features AKX of Righteous Revolution, B Fox, Kool G Rap, Rashad Roulett, Thirsty McGurk, Van Glorious, Ikee Mula, and the late Faith Walker with production by DJ Mercilless, Ear 2 That Beat, and bytman.
