Deacon the Villain (of CunninLynguists) & Sheisty Khrist – N*ggaz Wit Latitude (Stream)

blame it on Shake November 30, 2010

With Deacon the Villain and Sheisty Khrist releasing their NWL project today, the good folks at QN5 have decided to allow y’all to stream the entire thing before you purchase. With Deacon handling the majority of the production (Kno and Kokayi provide a beat each), the album features guest appearances from Natti, PackFM, Mino Slick, Bianca Spriggs, Soul Akoben and guitarist Willie Eames.

Tracks like “American Greed” and Rip The Guts” take the listener for a tour of society’s shadowy corners while “Ascension” and “Final Call” connect with an airy spirituality not-often heard in modern Hip Hop. An open-booth policy was kept during the recording process, with the Kentucky-natives trading places often, challenging each other to up the ante with each verse. The result is a thoroughly dense, rough-around-the-edges musical bombshell that manages to add another distinctively insightful chapter into the annals of southern soul.

If that all sounds a bit intellectual to you, that’s ok…they dress up like NWA – complete with Jheri curls and Locs for your entertainment too.

Hit the jump!

As you can see, you can purchase the album via Bandcamp directly. You can also head over to Niggnorance.com and order a physical copy (which are being shipped on December 14th).
