Together, Albuquerque, N.M. producer BK Beats and frequent collaborator/close friend PBZ have crafted a cohesive, 10-track release in the Time Is Of The Essence EP. In addition to showcasing their ever-evolving talents as producers—particularly on cloud-rap jam “HOME” and vibrant opener “Carlton Dance”—the project features guest vocals from some choices MCs.
On “Soul Fly”, which rides out on its own, you’ll hear a collage of rhymes from Charlotte, N.C.’s Deniro Farrar, Detroit’s Boldy James, and Oakland’s Shady Blaze. Together, they bring complementary and rugged verses across BK and PBZ’s trunk-rattlin’, guitar-laden canvas. Elsewhere, Bay Area rap duo Main Attrakionz keep it languid and introspective on the ethereal “My Only Wonder”.
