The Cunninlynguists have built a reputation as being one of the most sharp-witted factions in hip-hop, and they are back again with a collaborative, seven-track project with The Grouch and Eligh. The project, The WinterFire EP, is entirely produced by Kno while Eligh plays the role of executive producer. Overall, it’s full of multi-layered lines and intricate rhyme schemes—this is raw, lyrical underground hip-hop at its best. Aside from the killer lyrics provided by the MCs, I’m really digging Kno’s production on this. From his use of drums and piano to the seamless samples, he really bosses this one out and lays some prime canvas for these cats to strut their stuff on.
