The Away Team National Anthem
- Words: Rob Geary
- Label: 6 Hole
The Justus League crew claims some of the hottest names in hip-hop right now, including superproducer 9th Wonder and Little Brother; now North Carolina‘s The Away Team steps up with their debut. Rhymer Sean Boog and producer Khrysis keep National Anthem well within the Justus aesthetic: Khrysis offers filtered soul hooks and deceptively simple arrangements that are harder-edged and a bit less catchy than 9th Wonder‘s work, while Sean Boog keeps up with workman-like rhymes. The funny liquor ode "Likka Hi (Last Call)," R&B love jam "One-N-Only," and swinging posse cut "On the Line" show versatility and promise.
