It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from them, but the much-heralded duo of Pacewon and Mr. Green are back at it with “Massacre,” a bruising new single featuring Bronx spitter Chris Rivers (Big Pun’s son).
After dropping two acclaimed releases—2008’s The Only Color That Matters is Green and 2012’s The Only Number That Matters is Won—the New Jersey-hailing emcee and producer are back together and sounding as good as ever.
And they couldn’t have picked a better title for their new track than “Massacre,” because it’s a well-placed punch to the throat of any wack artists listening to it.
Pacewon leads the charge over the slapping production from Mr. Green, who blends and manipulates layers of samples on top of one another. It’s a fitting setting for his tag-team partner, who raps about choking trash rappers and hanging them from his rear-view.
The same goes for Rivers, who bodies the beat with references to Super Smash Bros. and King Arthur in addition to a variety of flows.
