Czarface – Every Hero Needs A Villain

This is the 2nd album from the collaboration between respected underground producers 7L & Esoteric and Wu Tang legend Inspectah Deck. If their debut was a nice slice of classic hip hop it’s with the follow up that they come out all-guns blazing, with a relentlessly up-beat, formidable work with a real fire in the belly

The superhero theme and use of cartoon samples coupled with a triumphant old school boom-bap production make this a breath of fresh air from the anesthetized sound of much modern hip hop, very much a call back to the heads out there who yearn for the dynamic lyrical flow and breakneck dueling MCs of old. The core trio are joined by some great guest MCs including GZA, Method Man, MF Doom and Large Professor who all bring their A game.
