Just in time for A3C, the esteemed Atlanta production crew SMKA drops their new free EP, Darkest Before Dawn. It’s an East meets West effort and as you’d expect, all the beats are handled entirely by them, and then are rapped over by several of the Bay Area’s finest talents today. Zion I’s Zumbi, Mistah F.A.B., The Jacka, DaVinci, and Moe Green all make appearances, amongst other bright up-and-comers that CA has to offer.
Also to be noted, a lot of thought was put into all of the artist pairings on the EP, so everyone’s chemistry together is definitely something that listeners should look for. It looks like the more obscure rappers were teamed with some of the well-established Bay Area artists. It’ll be interesting to see if they keep pace with the likes of dudes like Fabby and Zumbi.
