Earlier this year, Truck North delivered a powerful, sleeper-of-a-mixtape with Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, brimming with dense rhymes and slapping production courtesy of The Roots’ James Poyser and Khari Mateen.

On a recent episode of Statik Selektah‘s Showoff Radio, the North Philly emcee brandished his mental rolodex of hardy rhymes over a selection of The Roots instrumentals, including “Respond/React” and “Concerto of the Desperado” from their 1996 classic, Illadelph Halflife.
