Hurt Everybody take over the 4th of July for the second year in a row, today they dropped their debut mixtape 2K47 and the excellent project has been well received. It is 14 songs in length and goes by almost too quickly! 2K47 showcases each multidimensional artist from several different angles, Supa Bwe and Carl each deliver both aggressive and warm lyrical performances. They kept the features in the family including Khori⁴, Mick Jenkins, Alex Wiley, Saba, Abel Gray, Rio and Logan with the addition of Twista joining in “Stay Awake” one of the stand out tracks of the mixtape.
Production is of course by Mulatto Beats who continues to achieve new levels, as well as beats from Supa, Carl and ZenZan Beats who has collaborated with Hurt Everybody since day one. In addition are Twin Peaks on the previously released single “Before The War” and Flight on “YUNO.” On second listen one of my fav tracks is “Summer Kings” which features Abel Gray and has Carl singing “When beauty strikes the eye, what is the heart to do? The summer sky is right then Imma lie with you.”
In true Hurt Everybody style they released 2K47 on their own without an outside premiere and earlier than the scheduled 2:47 PM due to fan demand. It’s a complete package with exceptional artwork created by Abel Gray and all the lyrics can be found at Genius.com. The group overcame several obstacles along the way including a crashed hard drive which resulted in countless tracks being lost and some friction within the group, but they rose and created a great body of work. And the gifts keep coming – go to HurtEverybody.com for a free download of the mixtape as well as over 100 songs from their catalog and new merch is available as well. Happy 2K47!
