Tri-State rapper Ran Reed just dropped an album this past Friday. Here via Soundcloud we get a tantalizing taste with a Bumpy Knuckles feature on the single “Pathetic M.C.’s.” I love socially conscious hip hop, something to stir up the emotions; but my favorite type of hip hop maybe be Freddie Foxxx bitch slapping whack MCs. This is my introduction to Ran Reed, and he brings the fire.

Reed’s self-produced beat is an energetic, raw banger. A deep tone on the synth and panned sounds help push the momentum. The drums are rocking with a piano blip that adds anticipation. Both MCs go aggressive with bars and disses for the new wave of soft, mumbling pop stars. Self-released, the album dropped a few days ago with this joint premiering on 2dopeboyz.

Shabaam Sadeeq, DV Alias Khryst, Sadat X MOP and Kool G Rap all get in on this 20 track LP.

“Pathetic M.C.’s” is taken from Still Commanding Respect, which is available for purchase through iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.
