'The Cornerstone EP' - Crucifix & The Krate Krusaders (review)

If you're a Certified Banger regular then you'll know of The Krate Krusaders and their excellent production. If you aren't and you don't, check out this release because it showcases their sound and style perfectly. Crucifix drops the kind of rhymes that are best described as poetic; displaying intelligence with the ability to uplift without a cliché in sight.

'The Majestic' featuring Vex is the only track that is out of place on this release... and its mainly Vex's "old getting stabbed in the head" rhymes that makes this the case - I'll be skipping that one despite its dope beat. 'Restorations' menacing synths are coupled with a heartfelt sung vocal sample - a strange marriage but a beautiful one. A great EP from the UK Hip Hop scene - get to know. Buy it at Amazon or itunes.
