North Cak’s Sup is probably the nicest MC this side of Masta Ace or the GZA. Yeah, he’s good enough to be in that company, and on Beat Society’s (Illmind, MoO, M-Phrazes) Pete Rock-style productions his words seem extra-flexible. Lyrics like “Tuuurrn-it-up/turn the volume up a notch/in the car, in the crib, in the club, on the block/Just-let it bang till your eardrums pop/Yes-let it bang in your boombox,” seem effortless. Do not miss his debut album The Deadline.
