Saskatchewan native and producer Rayne Drop has released his debut EP, Phantom Of The Chopera. The project features emcees from across Canada, from Toronto (iLLvibe, Truth Willis and Mickey Ulster) to Vancouver, Edmonton, Barrie and Prince Albert.
The dirty instrumental introduction, with it’s dark synths and crunching kicks, will make any rapper worth his or her salt want to jump on it; the path for this project has been clearly laid from the beginning. From the early Kanye-esque string sample of ‘The Revolution’; the stabbing horns of ‘Real’; the eerie vocal sample on ‘Pride’; the mid-90s New York vibe of ‘Basic’; the bouncy ‘A Little Rain’ (Fun Fact: the beat was picked by Rayne Drop’s son); the gritty cinematic ‘Confirmed Kill’ and the anthemic ‘Air Jordans’, ‘Phantom Of The Chopera’ truly appeals to fans of every facet of the genre.
