When I say that Hellfyre Club’s new label compilation, Dorner Vs. Tookie, is one of my favorite projects of the fall, I actually mean that it’s one of my favorites of 2013. This crew has been absolutely on fire the past few years, what with the good-to-great releases from Milo, Open Mike Eagle, Nocando, Busdriver, and others. But given the lackluster crew and label compilations I’ve heard these past few years, I was nervous that something might be missing on Dorner Vs. Tookie.
Well, my feelings were completely changed as soon as Taurus Scott’s booming “Bouncin’ In The Trap” rattled my walls and each and every other member of the team wowed me with their respective tracks. I mean, Open Mike Eagle’s “Degrassi Picture Day”? Nocando’s “Give a Fuck”? All the songs with three to five MCs just ripping apart beats? I’m gonna need a minute here to calm down.
