Boston’s own Rite Hook has returned with “The Road,” an equally gritty and catchy new single from the hard-nosed rapper destined to leave heads spinning with his whirlwind bars. At least, that’s what’ll happen once you hear the second verse on this track, which is a non-album leak off his upcoming next album, ‘Modify’.
Hook’s fervent rhymes are the perfect match for the tough, neck-breaking instrumental supplied by Sicknature of acclaimed production team the Snowgoons. As each teeth-gritting line hits your speaker, it’s complemented by hard-hitting percussion and a sing-song chorus that’s become something of a trademark for the Beantown resident. It’s rare that an emcee can balance writing rhymes and vocals like Hook, and he makes it sound easy on “The Road.”
This banger of a joint “The Road” is available now for streaming below. Consider it a holdover as we wait for the proper first single off Modify, which drops in early 2016 on Leedz Edutainment, and serves as the follow-up to 2013’s From The Wrong.
