CunninLynguists: sleeper hits from a southern hip hop matrimony

My fav sleeper hip hop hits from this group are
– the south
– doin alright
– beautiful girl
– georgia
– mic like a memory

Have you heard of this band in the last 10 years? Have you heard of them AT ALL? Sadly, I would bet you sain “no” in some form at that question. Thats how long this band has been at it, since 2000 actually. Most groups don’t make it this far without making it big. Even more of a minority is a 10-year band that still puts out quality material. This band has both those titles and deserve far more. The three southern gents who make up the band are Kno, Deacon the Villain and Natti (from Georgia, Kentucky and Kentucky respectively).

It’s hard to find good hip hop. Yes, I say that often but its damn true! Its like trying to find the one living Waldo in a sea of Waldo zombies. CunninLyngiusts have great variety in beats, tempos, instrumentation, song moods and lyrical depth. For a hip hop group, they rarely get into a rhythm that is ego-centric. When they do come up to the shallow end of lyrical pool, its hilarious. While not their best track, ‘Thugged Out Since Cub Scouts’ is wrong and funny as all get out, for a multitude of reasons.

Listen to and purchase any or all of their tracks at the CunninLynguists Bandcamp Page or make their acquaintance and ‘like’ them on the CunninLynguists Facebook Page. Oh, and yes they are STILL putting out records and touring. Hope you enjoyed!
