Ahead of the release of his new 7″ Booda French takes his turn to step up to the plate and air out Ed Boogie’s remake of the classic Milkbone ‘Keep It Real’ beat. After making his name as one of the front runners on the battle scene under his former moniker ‘Truth’, he’s gone on to gain a strong following with his signature drawn out slurring, collaborating with the likes of Tanya Morgan’s Von Pea as well as just returning from a tour of UK & Europe.
Now set to release his new 7″ on 250 piece turquoise coloured vinyl. Produced by friend and long term collaborator, J57, of the much heralded Brooklyn crew, Brown Bag All Stars it’ll be distributed by the legendary Fat Beats worldwide.
“Send a message and a follow…”

The new EP from our overseas brother, lead Wrecking Crew member, and future sound griot, Curly Castro has landed. And we’re amped to be able to give you an upfront hearing of it from him. The EP is produced entirely by his Wrecking Crew co-pilot and fellow script writer, Zilla Rocca, so you already know it has a strong pedigree from the get go.
The EP stays nothing but forward sounding but still bumping (‘David Rodigan’ being a personal pick) and features a high grade list of some of those on the cutting edge of hip-hop rhyming right now with the vocal talents of Elucid (Cult Favorite/Armand Hammer), Billy Woods (Backwoodz Studios/Armand Hammer), Castle (Mello Music Group), Hubbs (Git Beats), and the indomitable Wrecking Crew (Zilla Rocca & Has-Lo). “This EP is not lacking for powerful writing.”
Grab your copy below. And whilst you’re at it, we’d suggest you go look up all the Wrecking Crew’s projects. Both their solo music and the group projects. There is gold in them there hills…
