"Just one of so many on Bekay's last LP "Hunger Pains" Please make sure to check the video links on the "basic info" section"

The white mc, you either love them, or hate them. There have been some good ones(R.A the Rugged Man, Cage,Aesop Rock, and Sage Francis just to name a few).There have also been a ton of bad ones as well. But it seems like since Marshall Mathers hit the scene, the white mc has come out of the wood work. Whether you’re hearing them for the first time through the web (hey, if you’re playing bingo online for free, Spotify’s a given, surely?) Of course there have been dope mc’s before Marshall but, besides him, they all seem to struggle to find their place in hip hop, mainly because no matter how dope they are or how different their style is, maybe they will always be compared to him. Enter Bekay pronounced Bee-kay as in Brooklyn. The first time I ever heard of Bekay was during that whole Rawkus 50 movement which produced some of the best hip hop of that year. He dropped an album called the Horror Flick that I never got a chance to hear but, after hearing Hunger Pains, I’m definetly gonna have to go back and check it out. Hunger Pains is easily one of the best cd’s of the year so let’s get started with a track by track breakdown of this outstanding cd. Oh, and by the way this dude can spit…. really really spit.

1.Intro: just a basic intro but was dope nonetheless

2.I Am (prod by alchemist) Featuring DJ Revolution. dope ass beat and dope rhymes. DJ Revolution is the man when it comes to scratching and it is very refreshing to hear scratching on a album these days. this song kicks the album off perfectly 4 out of 5

3.Pipe Dreams (produced by Marco polo) featuring R.A the Rugged Man. R.A is one of my all time favorite mc’s and Marco Polo is always solid on the beats and this is no exception. The rhymes are off the hook as Bekay spits the line” is it me or does all of Lil John’s beats sound the same” my sentiments exactly. dope ass song. 4.5 out of 5

4.Bloodsport (produced by Shuko) First off when i heard this song i thought Primo did this beat and that’s not a knock on Shuko because this beat is sick but it does sound like Primo to me and Bekay brings it on this as well. 4 out of 5

5.Young (produced by Shuko) Another dope ass beat by Shuko. I’m gonna have to start checking for more of his beats because he is very solid. 4 out of 5

6.Rapstar (hunger pains) produced by Alkota and unknown. A song basically about his struggle get on decent song and decent beat 3.5 out of 5

7. Crazy (produced by Illmind) featuring Heltah Skeltah. We ,at Dotgotit, are huge fans of Heltah Skeltah and it should come as no surprise that I think this song is ill as fuck,but as dope as I think Heltah Skeltah is Bekay definitely more than holds his own over a ill as beat dope rhymes and a dope ass beat and did I mention how ill the rhymes were.Anyway 4.5 out 5

8.Brooklyn Bridge (produced by DJ Babu) featuring Masta Ace. First off DJ Babu is one of my favorite dj’s. His cuts are sick and this beat is sick. this was the only song I heard of the album before it came out and i thought it was dope then too. Masta Ace is a legend need i say more as him and Bekay rip shit in this ode to Brooklyn. This shit is so good it makes this Chicago boy wanna visit. 4 out of 5


10.Skemers (produced by Shuko) featuring Wordsworth. First off any track with Wordsworth is gonna be dope. Dude is too underrated and once again Bekay holds his own when on a track with a very dope mc and Shuko brings another heater. 4 out of 5

11.Realest That Run It(produced by Contagious) I wasn’t too familiar with Contagious’ work before this track. The beat was cool and it definitely gets props for sampling my favorite mc, Jay-Z…decent song. 3.5 out of 5.

12.Pops (produced by Beanone) Basically a letter to his pops:something most young men can relate to. Dude can rhyme his ass off 3.5 out of 5

13.The Raw(Street Orchestra) featuring Saigon and Inspectah deck. This is my favorite track on this cd as all three mc’s kill it over a dope ass beat. Bekay steals the show with lines like ” I’m like Magic with aids it don’t kill you it only makes you stronger”. 5 out of 5

14.Visions( produced by Jonathan Rotem) a song basically about seeing life through his eyes.Dope 4 out of 5

15.I Am remix(produced by Alchemist) featuring Dilated Peoples. First off, Dilated Peoples are one of my all time favorite groups and they rip shit. The beat is the same and once again, Bekay kills another track. I like this version better than the original. 4.5 out of 5.

This is easily a candidate for cd of the year as Bekay absolutely rips every track and is never overshadowed by the dope mc’s featured on this cd. I absolutely recommend this cd for all true hip hop heads because it damn near doesn’t get much better than this. Gucci Mane and Lil wayne fans need not apply because this cd has what all dope cd’s should have: good beats and outstanding rhymes. Overall score 4.25 out of 5.0
