As their group name suggests, Chicago duo Dat Bizness and Ill Gordon clearly spent quality time with the pad and the pen when it came to constructing the verses heard on this SC-produced EP.

Chicago emcee Iomos Marad’s 2003 long-player “Deep Rooted” still gets pulled out of the collection every now and then by yours truly, so it’s good to see the Windy City wordsmith still approaching his craft with the same level of integrity and intense lyricism that made his debut album so impressive all those years ago.
