Fury & Tre Lb Link Up for a Dope New Collab EP “You Already Know” (EP Review)

Bristol, Connecticut emcee Fury joined by Detroit, Michigan emcee/producer Tre Lb. The latter starting out accompanied by Southwest Sol as 1/2 of the Chop Shop being the younger brother of Psychopathic Records co-founder Shaggy 2 Dope of the Insane Clown Posse with the other being the founder of Leathal Wreckords, the organizer of the Leathal Weekend festival held in New Hampshire for almost 10 years & even 1/2 of Something Awful alongside Bizarre of prior D12 fame. We’ve never heard both parties on wax together previously but since Tre’s performed at Leathal Weekend 5 with his brother a couple years back, I was more than open about You Already Know heading into it.

“Burning Bridges” gets the EP going jumping over pianos & hi-hats explaining the bridge is burned so y’all can’t cross that river at all whereas “Rydin’ Though” produced by Tre Lb himself goes into a cloudy trap direction instrumentally to talk about taking shots & making the show pop soon as they hit the spot up. “Laughing to the Grave” featuring Dr. Gigglez brings a hellish tone to the beat finding humor in things that aren’t appropriate & “Stars” wraps it all up profoundly talking about flying away when looking at the sky during the evening.

1/12 & The Return of the Absent Minded Producer are great places to start for any underground head who isn’t already familiar with Fury or Tre Lb respectively, but to hear them crossing paths with one another for the duration of an EP wound up becoming my favorite project either one of them have done since the latter 2 I mentioned earlier. The production’s more trap-based, both MCs match each other’s intensity & gear fans up for the 7th installment of Leathal Weekend later this summer headlined by the newly reformed Kottonmouth Kings, Monday Night RAW Superstar/WWE World Tag Team Champion R-Truth of the Awesome Truth, Bizarre, Esham & Mastamind and King Gordy.

Score: 7/10
