Dope Hip Hop: Backburner released "Eclipse" this week!

Backburner is a dope Canadian hip hop crew consisting of the following MCs, DJs and Producers …

Fresh Kils, Wordburglar, Timbuktu, More Or Les, Uncle Fes, Ghettosocks,
Chokeules, Jesse Dangerously, Savilion, Jay Bizzy, Thesis Sahib, Beatmason,
Frank Deluxe, Dexter Doolittle, Psybo, Ambition, Johnny Hardcore, Manalive, Ginzu333 & MisterE


 

Backburner released their second full-length album Eclipse this week, with Toronto hip hop label Hand’Solo Records. I’ve had Eclipse on heavy rotation since lifting it from one of the producer’s studios.

Backburner is my favourite hip hop crew to party with. So there’s my bias — but normally partying with hip hop dudes makes me want to fight them in the street so … ya.

This album is dope. The beats make me grind my teeth. The lyrics titillate me. The samples delight me. From jazz snobs to cats who just did 2 years plus a day — this album has been entertaining everyone who comes to blaze with me. 💨

I love listening to albums and saying “but the album wasn’t mixed right” … ’cause I’m a jerk and it gives me sick pleasure but alas this album was mixed perfectly. Sigh.

Backburner knows what they are doing.

🎶 🎶 🎶

My favourite songs off of Eclipse are: All City, Creepy Crawly, Future Shock, Bottle Caps, Goon To A Goblin.

Because … beats.
