In a world where live instrumentation seems to be missing from hip-hop, Dave Coresh is here to deliver something fresh and innovative with his ARTAPE project. Hip-hop heads and rock fans alike will be able to find a way to enjoy this tape. The intro hits with some hard guitar to wake everybody up and then smoothly transitions into a mix of Dave’s live band with on-point production, bringing a new kind of sound to traditional hip-hop layouts. Dave’s lyrical content blends well with the unique beats and makes for an exceptional listening experience. After some time away from the game, the Chicago emcee has taken his time to deliver his next piece of art, featuring some help from Chuck LI, The Boy Illinois, Stefan Ponce, and more.
