The Southern rapper introduces his new album with firebrand lyrics over an effervescent beat.
Alabama rapper Bentley has announced his new album Street Knowledge, a full length collaboration with Parallel Thought, will be out March 4 and he’s introduced it with the attention-demanding ‘Cop Killa’.
“Don’t matter if you’re black or white — long as you got the badge you fit the description,” he raps, throwing the same deadly profiling back at an indifferent society — from the corrupt police up to the President himself. Bentley is furious, but that anger only focuses his delivery with a laser precision. It’s an appropriate pairing with Parallel Thought’s smooth, hypnotic production — the kind of trance-inducer that Bentley’s rap constantly tries to snap you out of.
