This is funk. Was going through emails, came across an album from Hip-Hop collective NewSC (New Success Culture) hailing from Columbia, South Carolina. Streaming the official smd-directed video for the intro cypher “Czar 7” (Above), the first emcee up to bat – Chadd Downing – reeled me in on the first verse while the last up – Perfect G – closed out nicely. More Success is the Czar Records collective’s second studio album, sporting a diverse selection of records. After the intro “Czar 7,” the next to catch my ear was “Always On My Mind,” followed by “Palm Trees” & “Reflections.” The production seems to experiment on itself, which lends to its own unique sound that persists even through the records I didn’t favor. Burn up and catch the vibe:
