Ran Reed feat. Bumpy Knuckles "Pathetic M.C.'s"

unnamed 

Longtime tri-state area rap bully Ran Reed is here to let every damn wack rapper in earshot know that their days are numbered on his infectious new banger, “Pathetic M.C.’s.” And because his harsh words apparently weren’t enough to drive that point home, he enlisted one of Hip-Hop’s biggest bruisers, Long Island’s Bumpy Knuckles, for a guest feature.

As you may expect, the two complement each other perfectly on here as they trade verses overflowing with tough talk and bravado. That goes for whether Bumpy’s spitting hilarious lines about being the “U.S.S. O.G.,” or Reed is taking down his opponents at the start with: “Rappers ain’t rappin’ no more, they straight mumblin’/ Give them a year, their career start crumblin’.”

 

Not to be outdone, Reed also produced the snarling, sample-flipping instrumental for “Pathetic M.C.’s,” which was inspired both sonically and conceptually from Ultramagnetic MC’s time honored classic, “Ego Trippin’.” You can expect to hear more cuts like this on Reed’s heavily anticipated new release, Still Commanding Respect.

Still Commanding Respect drops this Friday through all major digital retailers and streaming outlets, and will be available on CD, exclusively through Fifth Element. The 20 track LP includes features from Kool G Rap, M.O.P. Bumpy Knuckles, Sadat X, and U.G. among others. Refer to pre-order links below.
