Frank Nitt drops the most solid & important underground Hip Hop album for the year of 2016. “Asphalt Runways” embraces everything that “Underground Hip Hop ” is about. From the intro to the outro, Frank Nitt delivers an impressive 15 track project catering to all “real” fans. I’m sure you notice the stamp by Delicious Vinyl Records which honestly, in my opinion, are one of the most respected and known labels in the underground community. This album has 6 super dope tracks featuring Illa J (J Dilla’s little brother), Bishop Lamont and being a huge underground Hip Hop head myself, my favorite track is “Scratch For My Dogz” features the legendary LA based DJ/Producer DJ Rhettmatic and Hip Hop veteran Guilty Simpson.
When it comes to the new generation of fans that are not into the culture of underground Hip Hop, this project has the power to get a kid into this very important culture of ours. The power of influence is under appreciated to say the least. When I think of Frank Nitt, right off the bat I am reminded of his legendary group “Frank n Dank” and his close ties to J Dilla who to me is the most powerful and influential producer all ALL TIME. This is why we consider this album extremely important, it’s for the kids plain and simple. Allow new fans to get introduced to Frank Nitt and his important contribution to quality underground Hip Hop.
Tracks worthy to mention are “Social Butterfly”, “Hustler” Ft Illa J & “On This Earth” Ft. Bishop Lamont. These tracks are instant classics in our book. The production on this whole project is flawless, beats that bleed the underground Hip Hop sound that we all love. We are proud to say that real Hip Hop is still alive and Frank Nitt is on the front lines holding down the underground culture. Make sure to peep this album today on SPOTIFY and support real music!
