CunninLynguists - Dying Breed and In The City (feat. Zumbi of Zion I)

One of my favorite hip-hop groups, CunninLynguists, are gearing up to release their latest project, "Strange Journey Vol. 3", on April 1st and I can't wait to hear what they have in store for us this time. The group recently released two tracks from the album and both of them are bangers. The first song is called "Dying Breed" and features Deacon and Natti rhyming over a crazy Thomax instrumental. This shit is fire.

The second joint is called "In The City" and features Deacon sharing the mic with MC Zumbi (of Zion I) over a beautifully somber Kno instrumental. Very nice.

Check back for my full review of "Strange Journey Vol. 3" when it drops.
