HHE014 / Phantom Blade - Beware the Phantom Blade CD
One of the wittiest and most creative projects released in 2018
with a storyline and album cover inspired by Horror B-Movies. Also noteworthy is that the album was recorded & mixed by Justus League veteran Cesar Comanche at Missie Ann Studios.
NC's Phantom Blade consists of emcee Ghost Dog and emcee / producer Sharp Cuts. This gritty boom-bap duo have a natural chemistry that allows them to bounce off of each other effortlessly whether just having fun with the wordplay, telling stories, or sharing life jewels.
Their their full-length LP, 'Beware the Phantom Blade', is a masterclass in storytelling over Sharp Cut's impeccable, grimey, boom-bap production; weaving a tale of hip-hop quite literally creating a monster which Ghost Dog (aka The Phantom) & Sharp Cuts (aka The Blade) must track down.
The skits are often hilarious & the songs themselves cover the whole spectrum of vibes; from laidback & introspective to in-your-face & hard-hitting. The lyricism itself must be heard to be believed & features guest appearances from Precyce Politix, Mike L!ve & Tuscon (of 1100 Hunters), & Justus League's own Cesar Comanche.
