So Bob comes over to my house uninvited, as he is prone to do as of late, and he reaches into his back pocket and hands me this CD and tells me some random guy gave it to him and that I should Review it for the website. I grab it out of his hand and check it out, digging the whole Raiders thing these guys have going on. I pop it into my computer and tell Bob we should both give it a write up, but he deflects that, saying that he knows nothing about Rap - like I do, right? hahaha So it's only 2 songs, and I'm listening to the first track, Solidarity, and it's OK. It's got a sample from the movie The Warriors to start things off with, and from there it goes into some hard hitting musical journey with loud ass drums and lots of bragging and bravado about their Love for the best team in the NFL, the Oakland Raiders, and about the Raider Nation that supports them proudly, win or lose, a subject that I can definitely get behind. That's why Bob kept this and gave it to me, because he knows my Love for all things Raiders related. :-) The second and last song on here is just an instrumental version of the Solidarity track, so whatever. This sounds pretty legit to me. I don't Love it, I don't Hate it, but you can go to hazmatboyz.bandcamp.com and check it out for yourself. Is it Football season yet?? GO RAIDERS!!! hahaha
