WATCHLIST: RAMPAGE BACK IN FULL EFFECT
5/14/18

BY JASON HASHAWAY

Rampage
, best known as a member of the multi-platinum group, Flipmode Squad, with his cousin Busta Rhymes, came back on the scene hard with a three-song self-titled EP. In a time where rap has fallen in love with mumble rap, Rampage's message was simple: "Got lyrics? Bring 'em!" The hip-hop vet wants all emcees to know fans are still listening and want more out of rap music. He comes from a long line of beat-crushing, word-jabbing, earth-rattling tracks and lyrics, a legacy permeated in this latest release.

Rampage opens the EP with "Barz & Thoughts," produced by 1Tekneek, then jumps into "No Explanation" which gives us the classic Rampage sound from the First Lieutenant of Flipmode Squad who lays it all out on this high energy track produced by Black.Water.llc. The final track, produced by Felony Muzik, uses a sample from Snoop Dogg's "Who Am I (What's My Name)" indicating the strength and resolve in his name and legacy. With When Hell Freezes Over Part 1 & 2 coming soon, Rampage is definitely a priority on our Watchlist.
