When finding out that one of our favorite influences, Scarub of Living Legends was featured on The Wilde’s most recent release, we had to check it out. Graciously, TW sent us the album “Urban Alien Nation” himself, and to be honest, it’s a very creative release. The EP takes you inside TW’s vision and thoughts in a lyrical form alongside a variety of production. From clean raps, to dope vocal hooks, The Wilde is definitely keeping the integrity of Hip Hop alive in the Bay area. Tracks to pay attention to: Leaving the Living Dead, Greatest Fear (feat. Milo) , Urban Liberation (feat. Scarub).– UndergroundHipHopBLOG.com
