“Horus Gump”

The homie Rod McCoy (Audible Hustle Entertainment) is ready to light up 2018 for the South in a way that only he can. He got the ball rolling by changing up his moniker to Horus Gump. The unique new stage name is a nod to the mythical Egyptian God of the sky, the rapper’s birthplace of Montgomery (AL), and legendary film character Forest Gump. Molded by the perils he faced in life growing up, Horus developed a strong connection to spirituality which is reflected via his emotional and thought provoking art. Said art is enhanced by his ability to self evaluate, his mentality to overcome, and his past experiences with singing, instruments, & poetry. Mr. Gump has dubbed his individualized brand of music as “Ratcheous – inspirational, vibe amplifying and intertwined with an unfiltered approach (Press Release).” To give the people an idea of exactly what that means, Horus is currently pushing his debut single “IDGAF.” It is produced by Los Angeles (CA) talent Kern Deuce and is slated to appear on his upcoming EP titled Fuck Nigga Season.

Remember BryZone_YBP? He’s the gifted Australian producer who laced the hit single “Pushin Dope” for our kinfolk Rod McCoy. The Aussie beat maker dropped a project last month that was recently placed on The Illixer‘s radar. It’s a beat tape titled Caipiroska and it contains a hearty 26 tracks.

“La$t Day” (previous review)

Alabama’s own Rod McCoy finally graced his supporters with his Smoke And Murals EP a couple of weeks ago. The EP is a six track refresher course in what Rod has to offer as a solo emcee. Additionally, there is a nice little selection of guest artists as well as producers. The brief album is said to contain jazzy boom-bap instrumentals with subject matter ranging from gang violence to hustling to everyone’s favorite girl, Mary Jane. “La$t Day” is the lead single from the collective and readers can check out the site’s take on it above. After the break, readers can get a feel for a few other numbers that happen to successfully hold their own.
