Chicago collective Pivot Gang have been showcasing their respective talents individually for a few years now, but, with the announce of their new project, it’s time for them to come together on some rap Power Rangers, Megazord type shit.
Along with announcing their debut album, You Can’t Sit With Us, Pivot unleashed their latest single, “Bad Boys,” which hosts Joesph Chilliams, Saba, MfnMelo, and a guest appearance from Smino, each adding their own distinct flavors to the effort while still maintaining a cohesive, unapologetic vibe to the gritty effort.
With such a talented roster, one of the most fun things about this album is going to be picking a favorite verse in each song. Here, I have to give the nod to Joseph Chilliams who showcases his knack for clever, uproarious one-liners. The way he uses humor is one of Chilliams’ biggest assets and I suspect, it’ll make him a fan favorite when the album drops; but really, with the whole gang along for the ride, it’ll be a pick your poison situation.
You Can’t Sit With Us is set to drop on April 19th but is vailable for pre-order on iTunes right now.
