Two of Minnesota's finest TeK & Metasota return and follows up their excellent #HurryUpAndBye EP from 2015. They have done it again, releasing another 4-song EP, What's That 4?. The four tracks all display their technical skills as both producer/MC TEK & Metasota are exactly on point. My favorite track on first listen is the jewel "Innocence" featuring the gorgeous vocals of Lady Midnight. What's That 4? is loaded with crisp production and bars, bars, bars from TEK and of course Metasota. This duo brings the raw, lyrical and boombastic.
