Chino XL, Copywrite, Vakill, Tame One & Stu Bangas Are ‘Verse 48’

blame it on Shake June 8, 2014

As a fan of actual lyricism, I place the guys listed above as some of the best. Over the years, Chino XL, Copywrite, Vakill and Tame One have provided incredible lines, show-stopping verses, and shown the ability to make the English language work in their favor. And while he might not speak the same with his words, Stu Bangas has made a career out of crafting some heatrocks. Put all of them together and you’ve got some serious firepower on your hands.

Taking to Instagram, Copywrite announced that the above parties were joining forces under the name Verse 48, and will be working on an EP together.

To help give you an idea of what these guys are capable of, and further explain my personal excitement, I’ve included examples of each artist below.

Chino XL



Tame One

    I like to be real tame one is ill but if I had to pick a weak link its him copy vakill and chino are punch line gods I have read reactions from various fans to this collab in different spots and i think to many haters have focused wrongly on their differences and not the way they compliment one another. People are judging chino is not the best at beat riding but his punches are un matched, vakill is a structure and punch beast, copywrite may have watered down but I think it helped him build up his style, and this is the beast.

    All these collabs are my dreams coming true. Keep them coming rap gods

    I’ve followed one and a half of those names. Will be interesting to see how they all sound together. Chino is EXTREMELY hit or miss. A lot of stuff I’ve heard from him is trying to fit way too many words into one spot, but he can shine when he wants to.

    Stu Bangas has made HEAT with Chino and Copywrite…can’t wait to hear this offering

  • If you’re not excited about this, I don’t like you as a person.
