Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: The East Flatbush Project
Title: A Day in a Life
Label: 10/30 Uproar Music

If the name East Flatbush Project rings a bell, it's possible you remember their underground rap classic "Tried By 12," a song with one of the most haunting and memorable beats in hip-hop history. You won't hear the same MC on this song, but that's simply because East Flatbush Project is a catch-all name for any rapper founder Spencer Bellamy puts on wax. The unnamed new cat combined the hard intensity of Kool G. Rap with the lyrical reality of Cormega and spits some surprisingly thoughtful lyrics from a thugged out perspective. "That's why I put more than heart/I put mind soul and body into everything I do, including this song/Feel me! Fuck you gon' tell me 'bout pressure? And not allowin small things to depress ya?/Ride with me with, no insurance (right)/I feel like I already ran a marathon and got no endurance." Any beat suffers by comparison to "Tried By 12" but the heavy bassline and whistling sounds form an excellent backdrop to this rugged rap. East Flatbush is overdue to blow up again and this song heralds their arrival nicely.
