Coast Contra "Never" (Freestyle, Video)

Twin brothers Ras and Taj Austin, sons of West Coast rap legend Ras Kass and Soul songstress Teedra Moses, met Colombian-born Rio Loz in high school to assemble the group Coast Contra. After releasing their first mixtape ‘The Coast Contra Volume Tape, Vol. 1,’ the trio later found its fourth member Eric Jamal, a bubbling rapper out of North Philadelphia, PA. Knowing two of the four members were sons of Ras Kass, I was quick to check them out and I was certainly not disappointed. Coast Contra means a universe within your universe where anything is possible, limitations non-existent. I don't know what the production is gonna sound like when their debut album, Apt. 505, drops at the end of March... but I'm highly anticipating their unique wordplay and raw delivery to shine through and be on full display. When touring and venues open back up properly, I definitely hope to catch one of their live shows. Check the group catching a body, rhyming over J.I.D.'s "Never" below and especially the fourth verse; true storytelling at its finest.
