Hillside, N.J. spitter Beneficence hits the studio with a vengeance in his new video for "Smooth Hardcore", a laid-back boom-bap journey, produced by the UK-based duo Jazz Spastiks, and featuring living BX legend, AG (of Showbiz & AG, D.I.T.C.). Fans of both emcees may already be familiar with their previous collaboration on the track, "All Real", taken from Beneficence’s 2012, Concrete Soul LP.
Supporters of the New Jersey rapper no doubt recall "Smooth Hardcore" as one of the tougher cuts off his 2016 acclaimed Basement Chemistry LP, which was released on 2xLP, CD, and cassette, following the initial digital launch. And in a visual sense, the track retains its equally gritty and chill nature by showcasing Beneficence’s work ethic and desire to stay true to the roots of the culture.
Taken off Beneficence's limited edition "Smooth Hardcore" 12" vinyl incl. the original version plus exclusive remixes by K-Def (Real Live, Lords of the Underground, LL Cool J, Tragedy Khadafi, etc.) and up-and-coming beatsmith Brous One.
