Beast Coast - Escape From New York Music Album Reviews

On their first album as a collective, Beast Coast attempt to move beyond the boom-bap revivalism that made them famous.

Ever since 1999, the rappers and producers of the Beast Coast collective have been pegged as Golden Age evangelists and neoclassicists. They were a New York City squad with throwback New York City values, out to restore the soul to what de facto leader Joey Bada$$ called rap’s “very trash state.” A supergroup made of three smaller Brooklyn rap groups—Pro Era (Bada$$, Kirk Knight, CJ Fly, Nyck Caution, Powers Pleasant), Flatbush Zombies (Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, Erick the Architect), and the Underachievers (Issa Gold and AK the Savior)—they spent their early years trying to conjure Biggie’s era by showing utmost reverence to the sacred land he stood on.
