Proper now, an enormous swath of the rap underground is engaged on the blueprint that Roc Marciano established greater than a decade in the past, and two of essentially the most quietly constant post-Marcberg rappers are Delaware’s RU$H and Jay Good. RU$H/Jay Good tracks have a tendency to suit into a really particular mildew. They ship impeccably worded luxury-rap bars over hazy, minimal beats, and the impact is fuzzy and evocative — a fantastical crushed-velvet street-rap dreamworld.
RU$H and Jay Good have the perverse behavior of dropping round Christmas. Final 12 months, they got here out with their Famili 3 undertaking on Christmas Eve. This 12 months, they launched the follow-up Famili 4 on Christas Day, and I’m solely getting round to it right this moment. However throughout this chilly and sleepy season when nothing a lot is occurring, these two guys someway sound particularly splendid. Famili 4 options appearances from Tha God Fahim, Massive Cheeko, and Kuji Younger, however RU$H and Jay Good are the actual attracts right here. Hearken to the tape under.
The self-released Famili 4 is out now, and you will get it at Bandcamp.
