The Frontline What Is It
- Words: Tomas
- Label: Infrared Music Group
Now what do we have here, a new dude reppin' the Bay?, asks The Frontline's MC Locksmith, who, along with his partner Left and producer E-A-Ski (who's done beats for Too $hort, E-40, etc.), ushers in a next gen of fonky realism for Nor Cal rap fans. The track, with its rough Neptunes feel, matches the Richmond, CA duo's spiky spits, which answer any doubts about their abilities post-MTV battle (where Lock placed a controversial second). With enough bump for the club and stop-start lyrical delivery, this cut's on its way to being a new Bay classic.
