CZARFACE – Wu-Tang founding MC Inspectah Deck and veteran Boston duo 7L & Esoteric – isn’t concerned with the glitz and the B.S. that modern consumer culture is pushing. And neither are the group’s fans.
In 2013, the trio appeared relatively unassumingly with their self-titled debut, which was chiefly produced by DJ 7L and included guests ranging from Ghostface Killah and Cappadonna to Vinnie Paz, Action Bronson and Roc Marciano. The soon-to-be acclaimed group found out quickly that there was a groundswell of hip-hop fanatics thirsting for the lunchpail, lyrics-above-all-else rap they fell in love with in the ‘90s. Several pressings of the album on CD, 2-LP and even cassette later, they are back and ready to up the ante.
This time around the group is the same, but it’s fair to say that all three men have stepped up their game. “We knew how we felt about the last album, but weren’t sure how it would be received by listeners,” explains MC Esoteric. “But people really responded to it, even more than we had hoped. That gave us the confidence to really spread our wings and let loose on this one. The chemistry is even tighter this time around. We know exactly what lanes we are cruising in and what weight class we are fighting in for Round 2.”
Inspectah Deck adds, “Czarface is like the Danger Room for the X-Men, I can use all my weapons on there. When I’m in Wu-Tang, I have to come a certain way because we have a certain style of fan, when I’m here doing the Czarface projects, it allows me to actually be an MC, it allows me to actually just spit…I love that. I love when i can just spit freely and just be an MC.”
The fighting analogy – whether drawn from pugilism or ‘80s wrestling, both which figure into Every Hero Needs A Villain – is an apt one, considering the unrelenting lyrical attacks that Deck and Esoteric unleash on track after track, each trying to one-up the previous verse. Best of all, it is friendly camaraderie, based around a loose theme of renegade mutant MC talents running wild. DJ 7L explains, “All three of us are influenced by comics, sci-fi movies, TV, wrestling. Czarface encompasses all of that, and it helps with the visuals as well.”
On the production side, 7L shows yet again – as he did with the group’s debut – that he remains a formidable yet underappreciated musical force, constantly providing hard, funky and alternatingly ominous backdrops for the assembled MCs to use as lyrical luge paths.
If that wasn’t enough, it’s all iced with a ridiculously intricate and beefy 70-plus page, hardcover CD casebook with lyrics and extensive artwork by Gilberto Aguirre Mata (El Ultimo Codice) and L’amour Supreme, and with “Death & Abduction,” a comic written by Esoteric; and an explosive, comic-book-inspired cover by L’amour Supreme (Mishka NYC). The LP version also comes on Clear double vinyl, with a full-sized “Death & Abduction” comic.
This track is taken from the new LP “Re:Living” that dropped today worldwide. Be on the look out for my review dropping thursday.

Having produced one third of Nas’ generation-defining Illmatic, Large Professor’s place on the pantheon of hip-hop heavyweights is already etched in stone. When you add in his groundbreaking debut as a member of Main Source — or the fact that he has collaborated with luminaries like Pete Rock, A Tribe Called Called Quest, Busta Rhymes, Mobb Deep, Masta Ace, and Big Daddy Kane — it’s crystal clear that the man’s influence towers high above the history of the hip hop.
With Fat Beats Records’ release of Re:Living on June 9, 2015, Large Professor builds on his already impressive discography with an entirely self-produced record that delivers all the crisp drums, razor-sharp scratches, and innovative uprock grooves that define his signature sound. “I’m moving forward,” Large says, “But I went back to an earlier formula. With this project I feel like it’s the closest that I take it back to that Main Source style.”
Featuring Roc Marciano, Inspectah Deck, Cormega, G-Wiz, Fortune, and Lord Jamar, Re:Living shines a spotlight on New York’s best voices from the golden era to today. But above all, Large Professor lets his production do the talking — and with a legacy like his, beats speak louder than words.
