Horseshoe Gang: #TrueStory EP

There are moments when music is just so great! Slaughterhouse released a mix tape and then an album that went a long way to remind fans that lyrics actually do exist. With the help of Eminem they worked hard to show you lyrics could exist while still making a few radio friendly joints. In my opinion they succeeded, but they’re not the only super group in the rap game. And with a team just as lyrically capable, the Horseshoe Gang plans to make their own mark in mainstream music with their new EP “#TrueStory.”

Production: 8.5

The production for this group has taken a huge turn. If you were used to hearing hard core beats. The kind that fit perfectly with their rabid lyrics, you may be surprised by what you hear. The production definitely isn’t bad. Just not what we’re used to from this group, they have definitely be influenced by the multi instrument and electronic wave that has hit most main stream artist today. Don’t panic, there are still many hard core and gritty beats left to appease the old school fan. But the production is definitely mainstream friendly. One of the things you could have said about this group before was that they didn’t have a radio sound. That is no longer the case.
