5 Reasons Why You Should Buy...: Masters Of The Dark Arts: "We Ain't Tryin' To Twist Nobody's Arm To Like Our Sh*t... Give It A Chance & You'll Dig It. You Might Even Love It!"

[Teaming up with DJ Premier, Statik Slektah, Sean Price and more, La Coka Nostra dropped their 4th album, Masters Of The Dark Arts, last week (7/31). Using this LP to demonstrate the essence of real, hardcore hip-hop, the bi-costal rap group is giving you the top five reasons to buy their latest project.]
1. Good Music
Everything else out right now sucks. We wouldn't release [our music] if we didn't like it. We love it. We're fans of all kind of music, but nobody that really rides with us is releasing anything right about now so there's nothing else to cosign aside from our stuff. So we think it's better than everything else out--not just hip-hop either.
2. Hard Body Hip-Hop
Support hardcore hip-hop. Every day [you] can listen to something different and it will get you open. Right now I'm listening to "Coka Kings" one, and I don't know why it just got me open.
3. Check The Beats
It's the best record out this year. It's a dope record with bangin' drum beats, bangin' samples, good lyrics...a lot of the other stuff out now isn't really hip-hop.
4. Premiere Collaborations
We got that fire DJ Premier shit on it. [We collaborated with] Sean Price, Sick Jacken, Q Unique, Statik Selektah and DJ Lethal. But Lethal's part of the group--that's extended family now so [we] don't consider that a collaboration. He did like four tracks on the album.
5. For Real Hip-Hop Fans Only
[We] honestly don't really care about the people [not checkin' for the album]...it's as simple as if you like hardcore hip-hop, then we're here for you. If you're not into that, you're not checkin' for that, then we're not checkin' for you. If you're rockin' with us then you've been rockin' with us already, and if they're not, then they're gonna get hip to it on they're own. We ain't tryin ' to twist nobody's arm to like our sh*t, you know. Just sayin' that it's hard-body...if that's something that peaks you're interest then give it a chance and you'll dig it. You might even love it!
