DZ The Unknown – “Thunder Slap” feat. Celph Titled x M-Dot x Esoteric x Big Shug (Prod. By C-Lance)

So the homie Revalation (of EMS) hit me in the Instagram inbox during my late summer hiatus (the only time I really check that box)… and Sun was right on time! He was like…

HUGE Posse Cut w/Celph Titled, Esoteric, M-Dot & Big Shug. Peep when you can 🙏

And I was like… [thinking] Okay, Rev has always been cool to me on Facebook. Interacting for real. Not just hitting me for ‘favors’ but actually interacting, So I will give it a ‘respect listen’ as such. And I did. Then I was like…

Yoooooooo Rev! That’s that EVILLLLLLL!!! Thanks for keeping me looped in. On hiatus for the most part but back to blogging on JayForce starting Sep.

And I got back to it this month… to a mound of stuff to post for the month, but now (drum roll) I present…

“Thunder Slap” is a voltron style collaboration that brings together four underground Hip-Hop institutions in Army of the Pharoahs, EMS, Gangstarr and Czarface as Celph Titled, M-Dot, Big Shug and Esoteric amalgamate with upcoming artist DZ The Unknown for this whiplash inducing slapper… You might not of heard the name DZ The Unknown before but after you hear this tune you won’t be forgetting it anytime soon, “Thunder Slap” is produced by C-Lance [Vinnie Paz, Apathy, Action Bronson].

And you are right, DZ The Unknown – coming straight out of North Battleford, Saskatchewan (Canada). A’ight. I didn’t know before. But now I know. And I will NOT slip or sleep again!! You are on my radar.

Declaration: Respek on the name DZ The Unknown and the collabo crew on here that brought him out right!

And shout to Rev for bringing it all to my inbox.

RIP to Keith Elam aka GURU. And respek on the name Avrex and on the names of the Gangstarr Foundation fellows that stepped up to make this tribute happen. One time for the late great. Salute!

Avrex features his Gangstarr affiliates founding members Guru and Big Shug on a classic remix. He also gets help from his cousin KrumbSnatcha in this tribute to the late great Guru.The video has unreleased person family photos never seen before by the public until now! Avrex puts the track listing from the classic Gangstarr album “Moment of Truth” in his entire verse. This is a clever and witty way to pay homage to the legendary group Gangstarr. The intro consists of a shoutout from Guru’s nephew Justin Ruffin Elam. Production credits from Gambit Ent. (Germany). The song will be featured on Avrex’s upcoming album “Growth” set to release this spring.
