With the release of Non Perishables Vol. 4, some of West Coast battle rap’s premiere talent has come together on one album. From Okwerdz, to Illmaculate, to Marv Won, to Sahtyre, Non Perishables Vol. 4 comes fully loaded with 22 tracks that feature a slew of contributors from the battle rap scene, both past and present.
Los Angeles battle rap maven Lush One, who serves as co-executive producer and who features heavily on the album, expressed his enthusiasm for the project.
“If you wanna hear classic lyricism over modern production that isn’t embarrassing to listen to.. Slap dis,” Lush told DX.
“We are in an era of predominately solo artists in Hip Hop,” he further explained. “This is so they don’t have to split the money more & shit. I missed albums with helluv different styles weaving in and out of each other but in a modern context with updated slap.. That’s why we made #np4.”
Presented by 667 and Fresh Coast, Non Perishables Vol. 4 is mixed and produced by regular Illmaculate collaborator Chase Moore.
Many of the contributors premiered the project live on the Ruin Your Day battle rap media channel.
