“Gimme the microphone first, so I can bust like a bubble
the Cape Project and West Side together, now you know you’re in trouble”
This long awaited debut album by two notorious gangsta-girls definitely puts female hip-hop on the map and proves Dutch rap is the hardest rap going in Europe nowadays. On this recently released album, these rap pioneers offer an insider’s perspective of the violence and brutality in the gang-ridden hoods of Rotterdam. Supa’ da Luxi is being raised in the harsh and run-down West Side ghetto, and MC Blizzard, whose roots lie in Los Angeles, grows up in an impoverished inner-city housing project in Katendrecht, locally known as “the Cape Project”. Thus, the duo represents the most tough and dangerous of Rotterdam’s hoods, where drug dealing is the order of the day and escalating gang tensions are commonplace occurrences. Set in a ferocious and frightening amalgam of sirens and gunshot sounds,Supa’ da Luxi delivers superbly pulsating beats and thrilling basslines and brilliantly mixes tight raps with catchy choruses. MC Blizzard, already widely known for her lyrical intelligence and metaphorical stories, is on the mike again to show her skills as a supreme wordsmith. She offers a nihilistic chronicle of violent revenge scenarios and crack ho’s, but also gives voice to palpable rage by tackling real issues and condemning racist cops. All in all, Straight outta St. Franciscus pays tribute to ultimate hip-hop virtuosity and drops raw social realism. As it’s rare to come across such an innovative and progressive masterwork, you certainly won’t regret buying this album. In spite of just being released, each track is already an unforgettable classic. No doubt, this hugely influential album is a must have for anyone and will definitely be the rap album of the summer.
