MCs Vise Versa and Chief Nek grew up in Colorado Springs, a town known more for Rev. James Dobsonā€˜s Focus on the Family organization than for hip-hop. After blowing up the Springs, they moved to LA and recorded this solid debut; on the introspective single “Everyday” they document this transition, with help from fellow Springs native/LA transplant Stro the 89th Key (The Procussions). Standout tracks here include the soulful “Sweet Music” and the banging hard “In Deux Time,” both of which announce the duo as an estimable presence in the City of Angels.
