POUNDS featuring CONWAY “Kill You”

Limited cassette edition of 100 copies via FXCK RXP RXCXRDS will be released next month. Pre-Order here: or there: Heavy Lies the Crown is the latest effort by the New York State emcee and an authentic verbal assault spanning seventeen tracks. While Pounds has proven he’s straight on his own (even producing “Tony” and “H.E.R.” himself), he’s in good company on HLTC with producers presenting fire beats like Fith, Flick James and Spittzwell, along with notable features by artists like Conway, Westside Gunn, Clifton Hasting and Aleon Craft. A clear banger is the eerie “Coroners Office” which includes insane verses by Chris Rivers, Jarren Benton and DJ Hoppa. Another standout can be found in “Kill You,” which starts off with a brooding guitar melody and a slow drum beat, over truly a haunting sampling of “You’re Nobody (Till Somebody Kills You)” and features Conway The Machine and I.AM.TRU.STARR. Though relatively young in the game, he’s already looking like a seasoned vet. He’s been crowned Rochester 103.9’s “Battle Rap Champion” and has toured with Drizzy Wright, Jackie Chain and Chris Webby. So, in terms of soliciting his fan base and hustling through the sometimes grueling world that is your life, for Pounds, the grind don’t stop but the payoff is coming.


Limited cassette edition of 200 copies via FXCK RXP RXCXRDS will be released next month. Pre-Order here: or there: The New York rap scene has made somewhat of a resurgence the last few years, spearheaded by the likes of Roc Marciano, Ka, Ratking, French Montana, ASAP Mob, Bodega Bamz, and Action Bronson, to name a few. Now with Uptown’s Dave East, A Boogie, and Young M.A. making some noise in terms of some mainstream success, let us not forget NYC’s underground. Buffalo’s Westside Gunn and Conway are hitting us with the fly, bully raps while Hempstead, Long Island’s Hus Kingpin & Smoovth are more subtle with their approach and just as much chemistry. The duo hailing from L.I. pay homage to Prodigy’s classic solo debut H.N.I.C., released in 2000, with a 12-track LP of their own. “H.N.I.C. dropped Nov. 14 in 2000. My older brother had the vinyl, it was my favorite LP in high school, son, and I was 16 years old when it dropped. It’s only right that we rep the 16-year anniversary, 100 salutes to P.” #MoreMusicLessDrama.
