Imperial & K.I.N.E.T.I.K. “Crate Diggers” album stream

Crate Diggers is a new release from our favorite UK hip-hop duo. Stream the full LP below and let us know what you think.

Following the success of their critically acclaimed debut album, Hip Hop’s most unlikely tag team, Imperial and K.I.N.E.T.I.K., are back with a brand new album, vibe and label.

Since forming in 2013, the Cambridge/London-based duo have racked up three projects, multiple singles and won over crowds from London to Secret Garden Party.

As the first-ever release on EMI’s new The Real Fifth imprint, Crate Diggers finds the duo freaking the funk in a whole new way. After being assured that they’d face no legal action, the boys were given full access to the KPM music library with permission to sample anything they want. Some of your favorite artists have paid top money to use these same sounds – Jay-Z, Drake and Gorillaz – are just a few that spring to mind. Lawyers can sit this one out though because all samples are cleared! Biz Markie got sued so they could get paid.

The formula has definitely been updated this time around. Whilst staying fully in tune with their old school roots, they keep it real in the feel but bang up to date. They’ve added more boundless bridges, hilarious hooks, booming breakdowns, petrifying peaks, voluminous valleys, happy highs, lofty lows and all the extra sauce that comes in between. Think of a roller coaster coming through your speaker. But their mamas ain’t raised no fools and they still manage to drop a life lesson or two among all of the frenetic fluff.

Guest appearances include frequent collaborators Nate Rich and James Gardin as well as new co-conspirators namely Mr. J. Medeiros of AllttA, UK Hip Hop legend Seanie T and New York’s favorite foreign import emcee, Jamieson.

Crate Diggers was released on The Real Fifth / EMI.
