Core Wreckah wrecks shit. That’s the simplest way I can describe it.
My inbox was greeted this morning with his latest visual teaser and knowing that Core never disappoints, I was quick to press play. (Sidenote: If you need advice on how to submit a good press release, speak to Core. But I don’t want to go on a rant about that now and take away from the excellence that will greet you below.)
They Lied just goes to show you don’t need a huge budget to make a quality, compelling visual that holds the listeners attention right to the end. Core is meticulous and just as creative with his visual content and press shots as he is with his music – a true artist. Of course it helps that the chemistry between these two seems to be at an all time high, an exciting sign for their upcoming project. Cymtom equips his collaborator with a sumptous beat that begs for Core to do what he does best, and he duly obliges.
His rhymes are ferocious, tearing through the instrumental like a gorilla unwrapping his first christmas present. Make no mistake, these two guys from Lesotho mean business.
Check out the video and full press release below.
Following the release of their unrelentingly-hardcore, DJ Earl Scratch-featuring banger, “Get Clear”, Core Wreckah (rapper) and Cymtom (producer) travel to grotesquely-darker territory with a teaser taken off of their soon-to-be released collaborative project, tentatively-titled “The First One”.
“They Lied” is a warm-yet-grungy rhyme-feast of words, sounds, and relentless power. It is Core Wreckah at his rawest, most stripped-down form; it is Cymtom in his most rugged, filth-laden environment. This is hardcore rap music, salvaged from Maseru’s taverns and shebeens, transmitted through the speakers with complementary guitar work from Three Piece Suit’s Al Postman, and force-fed to the listener with the vigour and shrewdness of a miner breaking rocks miles and miles beneath the ground.
The message is frank and to the point; it is directed at any untalented, neurotic nonentity anywhere in the world. The message is: “You ain’t got skill!”
