The #TBT freshness continues today! After Raekwon in the previous post, the Mint Lab Astronauts call upon a couple of fellow Chicago emcees, LP and introducing female rapper TWSS for “Symphony Infinity” — a 2014 paralleled remix of EPMD’s classic “Symphony 2000” with Method Man, Redman, & Lady Luck.
J.pak, who notes this was one of his favorite beats growing up, kicks it off with one of his fastest flows yet to do the raw symphonic hip hop production justice. His verse also features some of his best lines as of late before LP keeps it going up second. The other half of the Astros, (and birthday boy, HBD!) pak.one, follows suit with some dope bars and concluding things, TWSS delivers the edgiest in-your-face bars of the group batting cleanup. There’s too much to recount and I’m already on repeat listens to even count in the first place. Lovin’ the parallel of the order as well, so much so, that I brought back the original music video too. Lend your ears!
