Hip-hop’s cream of the crop is producing such ripe music that even rap-haters and anti-boppers can harvest it.
That’s why it’s great to see the super-group Czarface showing the natural sweetness of collaboration with the single “Nightcrawler”.
Set to be on the group’s upcoming sophomore album, Every Hero Needs a Villain, the hardcore track shows Czarface’s Inspectah Deck and 7L & Esoteric are on top of their game – and the chemistry between these superstars is impeccable.
