 Hip-Hop/Rap 
 LP  

Get into a hammering stack of beats & rhymes from the team of Cappo & Nappa on the recently re-released album Rebel Base (HERE). Served up in a stalking, new era crime-funk sort of mode, beatsmith Nappa and anti-pop wordsmith Cappo come through and create such stand out cuts as the raw and rumbling “Originate”; a steadily uncoiling dose of cosmic thump called Kaos”; a finely chopped head nod gem called “Get Live”; a thunderous and triumphant album opener titled “Commitment Statement (Intro); and the unpredictable soundbombing title track, “Rebel Base”, which finds Cappo remaining focused with the rhymes as Nappa runs through a stash of beats and breaks in the backdrop. 

[su_highlight background=”#fff799″]KingUnderground’s proud to announce Rebel Base, the highly anticipated collaboration between Nottingham based Rhyme and Beat duo Cappo and Nappa. With their first single dropping in 2013 in the form of boom bap gem Red Hot, this slick and sonically stylish project touches on sounds from the past, present and future of hip-hop.[/su_highlight]
