There’s always something intriguing about two artists coming together with different styles to release a collaborative body of work. Chief Tony and MeRCY though have collaborated in the past, recently teamed up with KoJazz and in-house producer, Solidified for “Polo IV League: Horsemen“. Mercy and Chief brought this same energy when they reconnected for Sophisticated Thuggery, an album that finds both rappers redefine their chemistry. Complete with heartfelt lyrics, eclectic beats, and the rhyming prowess they are equipped with, they paint their masterpiece for the ears and mind alike. The album is overrun with sinister bars, hard drums and eerie soundscapes. They’ve slowly opened themselves up to fans across the board while strengthening the collective brand en route to their most sonically solid body of work to date.
