Listen to Camp Lo, “Black Jesus”
Back in 1997 Bronx duo Camp Lo dropped the Ski Beatz-produced "Luchini" and emerged as another New York act to keep an eye on. With their witty, fun-loving lyricism and funky slang, Camp Lo was in stark contrast to the gangster rap that was dominating the East Coast sound. Though they never matched the success of "Luchini" again, Camp Lo developed a cult following and went on to drop projects throughout the 2000's. In 2015, the group is reuniting with Ski Beatz and dropping Ragtime Hightimes later this month. With "Black Jesus," the Lo gets back to the basics with their familiar back and forth flow over a sample-heavy Ski Beatz production. Ragtime Hightimes drops May 19 peep, "Black Jesus" above.
