Long Beach crew Horseshoe Gang return to the music scene with their forthcoming new album Dope Lyrics Matter which will be released in the first week of December this year. The Horseshoe Gang consists of brothers Demetrius, Julius, Kenny and Dice who formed the group before they even reached their teenage years. A vital component in the west coast rap scene for close to a decade now, HSG have earned their stripes the old-fashioned way; by putting out good music that increases their substantial following with each subsequent release. That momentum continues with their forthcoming album Dope Lyrics Matter.
HSG is not a group that creates music based off of “vibes.” Rather, these brothers competitively strive to go after each other’s necks; bar for bar with each verse. That competitive streak was put on full display a few years ago after Funk Volume (Hopsin, Dizzy Wright, Jarren Benton) appeared on Sway In The Morning and challenged to face off with any group for 500K. HSG swiftly accepted the challenge when they visited Sway which resulted in back-to-back-to-back responses from the two respective camps. HSG releases the first single, “Shoes Fall Off” from the forthcoming album to get people to understand that lyrics will not be compromised yet the music can still be enjoyable.
“Considering the fact that Hip-Hop is now recognized as the most popular genre in music, we feel it’s important for dope lyrics to be properly represented. Dope Lyrics Matter is meant to highlight lyricism, so our supporters should expect classic Horseshoe Gang material on this project—bars and more bars!” You can pre-order Dope Lyrics Matter now on iTunes and receive “Shoes Fall Off” an as instant grat-track.
