Sewer Gravy featuring Oh No, Roc Marciano, The Alchemist
Label: Decon Records
This hastily recorded 20-minute addendum to Gangrene's 2010 debut Gutter Water is thrillingly sharp, brutish and short. Oh No and The Alchemist aren't great lyricists, but their combined talents behind the boards -- check the gangster funk horns on "Momma Told Me" and the looped Moog keyboard on "Hoard 90" -- easily match Roc Marciano's ornery street-hood threats and gritted-teeth boasts. To use a phrase from "Jet Luggage," Greneberg is "pimpery."
