Chuck Strangers, Kwame 3000, and Lee Bannon are Super Helpful a new rap collective from New York. Last week they dropped the free EP ‘The Help’ that can be downloaded here. Strangers and newcomer Kwame3000 are part of the Joey Bada$$’s Pro Era crew who also released an excellent mixtape ‘PEEP: The aPROcalypse’ earlier this year – another one worth checking out.
The best track from ‘The Help’, ‘SUMO’ actually dropped late last year – it’s both set firmly in the underground boom-bap tradition, but somehow manages to sound space-age and deep in the future at the same time. It worth revisiting here as this is the first excellent rap EP to come out this year and marks ‘Super Helpful’ as one to watch in 2013.
