In the immortal words of Charles Montgomery Burns: “I know what I hate. And…I don’t hate this”. Not exactly sure why, but I felt like openning the post via that quote. I think it’s because 95% of the hip hop-related submissions we’re getting right now make me feel like ol’ Monty Burns: 1000 years old and full of contempt. Anyhoo, this video is not that. Over a delightfully jazzy head-nodder from Relic, J Shiltz and his fellow ‘Sauga City spitter Junia-T stand and deliver about the art of emceeing. Taken from his new record, Still Standing, From The Soul is a helpful reminder that some still treat rhyming as a skill, a craft one practices because they fell in love with it and attempt to do it to the best of their ability. True story.
