The Stop

"I spit that uptown-body-rock-rolley-hop, and will a nigga ever shut me down? prolly not. Cause ever since I was a young lad I crushed emcees, kickin' ass takin' names at the trolley stop."

Well...this was one of the first albums I stumbled across while searching the web for new music to listen to. The minute I heard The Shining, it was all over for me. I was hooked on this duo. Canto I is made up of 2 brothers from Las Vegas, Nevada, Effect and Joe Fury. These kids can flow. Joe and Effect sync perfectly with each other, especially on the song "Burning Bridges." This album is worth the download. If your looking for another "rap" album talking about money, bitches, ice and fame...this is not what your looking for. This album is all is what hip hop is all about.

Check out their myspace.

Look out for their new album set to drop on July 8th.

Unfortunetly I don't have a link for a free download but you can listen to and buy the album at
