Rosco P. Coldchain - There Will Be Blood Mixtape

Ayo what up this is Wally $ean from The Message. Shout out to Guy Fawkes and everyone else at FunCrusher Plus.

If you've ever listened to a Clipse album, then you've probably heard of Philly emcee Rosco P. Coldchain. Rosco spit on tracks like "Cot Damn" and "Chinese New Year" with a manically off-kilter, almost spoken word flow. Rosco P. first started to gain notoriety in '03 when Pharrell signed him to the Star Trak Entertainment imprint. Since then, he's been quiet due to numerous musical impasses and a bid in the bing. Now, Rosco P's back in full force with a new mixtape called There Will Be Blood. As I mentioned earlier, P's known for his unique flow that actually feels a lot like spoken word poetry. Makes sense, given that he's posted short poems on his MySpace blog. But his flow isn't everything. Rosco's rhymes are highly symbolic and vividly detailed street manifestos abut drugs, guns, and life in the hood. Honestly, when I first heard him on "Cot Damn," I thought that his flow was a gimmick, but in listening to this mixtape, I can tell I was dead wrong. Like ex-Re-Up Gang member, Rosco works best in his solo material. He comes hard over a number of beats, including Raekwon's "Incarcerated Scarfaces" and Jay-Z's "Jockin' Jay -Z." Here's the link to the mixtape, courtesy of HipHopDX. Also, check the video from P's MySpace.
