Orville and Wilbur Wright probably aren't head-nodding in their caskets right now, but if they were it'd be to this track by Chino XL. Go 'head and count how count how many metaphors and similies and punchlines that Chino lets off in this 90 bar display. Don't worry . . . I'll wait.
Listen to "The Fresh Factory" this Sunday night from 12am - 2am to hear this and more from other generals of hip hop's literati.
A while back, some genius at Camp Lo's new record label (SRC/Universal) made the cruddy desicion to rename the group to The Lo. The idea failed and was probably what jinxed them and led to their first single, "Lumdi", being virtually ignored by Top 40 radio and club deejays. It was strange because, at the time that the song was released, it easily trumped any party/dance record that was out at the time.
Here's the new video for their most recent single "On Smash/89 Of Crime feat. Styles P". The version of "On Smash" you'll be hearing for the next several weeks on my Sun. night show, "The Fresh Factory" (here on 88.7FM) also features Pete Rock, who you won't find in the video. But you will find Chapel Hill's very own beat king and one of Camp Lo's resident producers, Apple Juice Kid, who makes a pretty creepy appearance in the video. He wouldn't have looked so out of place if he would have at least bobbed his head a little bit harder and not smiled so goofily.
