EarthGang - Kick'n It

I definitely dig this group, EarthGang. They sound like a mixture of Outkast and almost like a Hollywood FLOSS type of houston style. They are some geat MCs, both Johnny Venus & E. Hobbes have styles that you definitely shouldn't sleep on.

About EarthGang:
ATLiens Johnny Venus (left) and E. Hobbes (right) make up the dynamic duo better known to the masses as EarthGang. The two take on various genres of music, fusing hip hop, rock and afro-punk together into their own custom, eclectic sound- but never falling short of spitting pure, attention demanding lyricism. Still rookies to the music scene, the boys only have their debut mixtape The Better Party for show, which released January 2010 along with their “Earth Gang” t-shit brand. The Better Party intro “Booom (EG Rock)” was released for download as a teaser and began to receive internet radio play on blogs and sites based in New York, New Jersey, California, and the UK. Though EarthGang are constantly compared to Outkast, the two try to stay away from the strict branding. The duo finds their inspiration in The Beatles, UGK, Arctic Monkeys, Prince, Nas, B.o.B., Gill Scott Heron, Chester French and more.
