The Good People are exactly that, good folks that have maintained a strong presence in Hip-Hop since the mid-naughts. Consisting of MC/DJ Emskee and MC/producer Saint, these two heads eschew the violence and misogyny of hardcore Hip-Hop but still give fans that energy and sound of classic 90s Boom Bap. While some may even group them under the conscious Hip-Hop banner, their intent is to just make the kind of music that listeners can't help but nod their heads to. The type of tunes that send b-boys into the circle without a second thought.

While this true school twosome dropped a number of well-received projects (group and solo) between 2004-2013, it wasn't until earlier this year that they released their third official group album, "Good For Nuthin". The effort showed they hadn't lost a step. In fact, it is the very definition of essential, "no frills" Hip-Hop. The LP features some of the genre's most enduring pioneers and vets, including DJ Red Alert, Large Professor, Sadat X, Lil Fame, the Cella Dwellas and more.

Now, only a little more than four months later they are back with an offering perfect for the upcoming dog days, which is appropriately titled "The Summer EP". The 6-track affair carries on tradition without sounding retro. It starts with the genuine LA vibes of "Windows Down" featuring Tash of Tha Alkaholiks, which is followed up by a braggadocios posse cut with A-F-R-O and Termanology titled "Sidewalk Barbecue." Quintessential East Coast horns and thumping drums dominate the remainder of songs, including the laid back lead single, "A Summer Night At The Symphony." The joint starts with the same narrated intro as The Juice Crew's "The Symphony," and features noted spitter John Jigg$ and his team, MXNXPXLY Family, getting busy on the mic.

Suffice it to say, this extended player will be getting enough spins in convertible rides, at BBQs, and on late night radio shows that still play the real. Push play and experience that feeling of a cold drink on a sweltering day.

Genre:Hip Hop
True hip hop purveyors The Good People (consisting of MC Emskee and producer Saint), hailing from New York City, are here with two new quality tracks for this new Blunted Astronaut 7" record, "Think Twice" and "The Theory" (featuring Spectac).

"Think Twice" is a mid to slow tempo banger which tells of the pitfalls of not trying to make calculated, wise decisions in one's everyday travels. Emskee takes the first verse to set the tone, Saint steps in for the second verse with a storyline, and then they split the third verse with yet another story that is all too familiar with most aspiring artists in the industry trying to make it happen for themselves. An everyday reality record indeed.

"The Theory" is a smooth, jazzy-oriented joint which explains how alot of mc's and producers in the game don't really take the art form of making hip hop music seriously. The first verse has North Carolina based mic veteran Spectac kicking off with a rapid-fire flow, followed by Emskee with a self-explanatory hook and strong-voiced second verse. Saint rounds out the track with the third verse.

Both tracks are from the forthcoming release of The Good People's 4th album "Gone For Good".
