Let’s Go is a fresh, international Hip-Hop affair helmed by Sweden’s DJ Create, who enlisted the help of two European comrades (DJ Devastate and Koolade) and a pair of rap giants (Masta Ace and Rasco) to bring the whole thing together.
The Masta Ace-led title track kicks off the project, with the Brownsville native spitting laidback, sometimes-hilarious bars atop Create’s summery, piano-heavy instrumental. It all gets flipped on its head thanks to Sweden’s DJ Devastate, who blends Ace’s raps with pure funk straight outta the early ‘70s.
There’s an equally dope contrast presented on “Let ‘Em Know,” which features San Francisco’s own Rasco bringing that trademark West Coast confidence. While Create enriches the MC’s rhymes with keys, brass, and killer drums, Croatia’s Koolade takes Rasco’s rhymes straight through the gutter with snarling bass and haunting samples.
The Let’s Go EP is out now digitally through Threshold Recordings, in partnership with Elite Fleet Records, where both version of the EP's title track are available on 7-inch yellow vinyl, in limited quantities. As for that ill artwork that accompanies the release, it was handled by talented graphic designer Jonas Hilmersson, whose Instagram page is definitely worth a look.
