(CLEAN) Effect & Dang “Headphones Lie [f. Termanology, Esoteric, D-Tension, Illicit, & Mic Stylz)” (Los Wunder Twins Del Record Label)
In the tradition of emcee-producer inspired groups like GangStarr, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, and 7L & Esoteric, Effect & Dang have been passed the torch to carry on the tradition. Like 7LES and GURU, E&D prove that Boston is another east coast mecca for hip hop, and with “Headphones Lie”, they recruit some of Boston’s finest. Essentially a collection of individualized rants and attacks on garbage artists whose music come through their headphones, this song features Boston heavyweights Termanology, Esoteric, D-Tension, Illicit, and Mic Stylz, who each provide their unique perspectives over various samples and changeups in production. A heavy neck-snapper guaranteed to keep even the hardest-to-please hip hop head happy.
