Released: 2012
Label: GoodFelons  ‎
Label / Catalogue: GF7004
Artists: Roc Marciano Ft. Hus

Few years back a new indie kid popped up on the scene called ‘Good Felons’. Now defunct and for good reason, they put out a bunch of 7’s and ep’s that only spanned from around  2010-2013 and featuring the likes of MOOD, Kev-E-Kev & AK-8 and a repress of J-Force’s 93 ‘Bullseye’, which I managed to get a test pressing of (one good thing that came out of all their fuck ups).

I feel pretty bad for much of the artists involved with this label, some of the which addressed the fans personally via the labels facebook offering personal copies signed.

As the saying goes…Put the music before the money!!!

Besides these cunts being fuck ups, sending out warped copies or none at all like a pack of low dogs and not to mention having about as much communication as a rapist to it’s victim, the above mentioned is pretty dope track. One thing I will critic on though is that it looses it’s intensity at the end with Marc switching up the delivery and flow. Almost sounds like he’s recorded the last verse on kane up in Malibu 4 years later.

Respect the Arch Druids back drop but I’m in favor of the J Force remix below. Sounds tougher with the vocal having some more room to breath around those SP-1200 stabs and strings on loop.
