Regardless of how much talent a Hip-Hop collective has, the movement won’t go far if there isn’t chemistry already bonded in the relationship. It’s happened time and time…and time again. Thankfully for Pittsburgh’s The 58’s, the same camaraderie that unites them in the rhyme booth is identical to what ignited their friendship to begin with.
B. White and his crew – consisting of Franchise, Vinny Radio, Ghosty, Mayo, and Primavera Vills – are a colorful bunch, a pack of blue-collared rhymers with an abundance of green in their pipes with the finest Jäger and beer filling their cups to match the Steelers paraphernalia. With a fuzzy mindset, they’re able to pull off Big Jerm-produced headnodders like “All I Know” and “Outta My Mind” or a barebones exhibition like their self-titled song from this self-titled debut.
You already know who kicked in the door for the 412 and The 58’s are trying to take that b*tch clean off the hinges.
