Hip Hop Duo of Death strikes Big Time
*56 Pounds of Raw Flesh* is the latest phenomenon on the hip hop stage. The duo from suburban London made headlines early May when they released their first cd “Born Dead….So What?”. The release went double platinum in just 3 weeks, and they are now fully booked in talk shows world wide – Oprah, Tyra Banks, Jerry Springer, etc.
“Born Dead….So What?” is a multi-instrumental hardcore rap album that lyrically mostly recembles early and angry Ice Cube, but the musical viciousness and speed sounds more like their contrymen’s Silver Bullet and Hijack. The duo is experimenting with various vocal styles, but the most dominat is the straight-up hardcore rap style:
“Born in a world of shame and lust
Kicked to the ground and the dirt and the dust
Hit by slaves to the Man – fuck the police
Beat the dead down, cause they hate having peace”
Story tells it, the duo was killed in a police raid and while on the morgue table before autopsy, they resurrected and striked a deal with DEATH ROW RECORDS. Tru or false, wrong or right? The Duo of Death is here to stay!
