If you haven’t been keeping up, the Portland duo known as Load B has been dropping a string of bangers these past few months, and they added another one to the list yesterday afternoon. Over a simple piano arrangement and some synthetic drums, both emcees attack the beat with force, going toe-to-toe with one another in a way we haven’t heard before. Traditionally, Milc tends to take the class clown approach, lending a few clever one-liners and some funny bars while Brill takes the grimey route. This time around, he dips his toe in the political, all while Brill paints a pretty dire picture of a duo desperate to survive. Load B is still keeping quiet on what all of these new songs mean, but if they’re trying to build hype for a new project, they’re succeeding.
“Working like we famished, nigga. You fuckers lounging like you just finished a full course. You the first one I’ma snatch a plate from. Pirates in your kitchen drinking straight rum.”
