Bronx bombers B.I.C. put their stamp on rap with FTW, a four track, ten minute blast wrapped in fronto leaf and ready to burn. Yesus, Pete, Illz and Izzy drop manic uptown bars over production from Fool’s Gold’s own Nick Catchdubs, and promise more unconventional NY bangers in the new year. Turn it up!
B.I.C. link back up with Nick Catchdubs for “Thought U Knew,” another unconventional banger from their forthcoming FTW EP. Hyperactive BX bars zoom over cut-n-paste string chops and bass drops for a Fool’s Gold rap cut like none other. Play this loud, preferably in a residential neighborhood!
