Mentored and encouraged by their elder brother KXNG Crooked, the Horseshoe Gang embodies the term “family affair, “as brothers Demetrius, Julius, Kenny and Dice formed as a group before they even hit their teenage years. A vital factor in the west coast rap scene for close to a decade now, HSG has earned their stripes the old-fashioned way; by putting out good music that increases their substantial following with each subsequent release. That momentum continues with their forthcoming album Dope Lyrics Matter.
HSG is not a group that creates music based off of “vibes.” Rather, these brothers competitively strive to blend after each other’s necks; bar for bar with each verse. The competitive streak was put on full display a few years ago after Funk Volume (Hopsin, Dizzy Wright, Jarren Benton) appeared on Sway In The Morning and challenged to face off with any group for 500K. HSG swiftly accepted the challenge when they visited Sway which resulted in back-to-back-to-back responses from the two respective camps
Dope Lyrics Matter, represents the group’s head, both in title and content. HSG’s reputation as ruthless lyricists delivering quick-fire rhymes, hooks, and vastly superior wordplay is well-proven, but Dope Lyrics Matter also displays versatility in themes and concepts; with humor, rage and pathos evident throughout.
“Considering the fact that Hip-Hop is now recognized as the most popular genre in music, we feel it’s important for dope lyrics to be properly represented” HSG stated to Mass Appeal. Dope Lyrics Matter is meant to highlight lyricism, so our supporters should expect classic Horseshoe Gang material on this project—bars and more bars!”
Horseshoe Gang’s Dope Lyrics Matter will be released on 12-8-17 via COB/EMPIRE.
