Despite being a lyrical legend in the eyes of many, Chino XL’s wordy flow has never been easy on the ears. However, the task of deciphering the man’s raps is made much easier with a beat as knocking as the one Houseshoes provides for “Eye (Stomp).”
Carried by a cement-breaking kick-snare combo and arpeggiated strings, the West Coast MC attacks the beat with his arsenal of wit and dedicates the track to his late 313 homies Jay Dee and Big Proof with a nice, mellowed out chorus. If you can keep up and happen to be interested in hearing more from Chino’s upcoming RICANstruction: The Black Rosary album, the full project drops September 25.
