With his newly released maxi-single for “Riot Control”, microphone specialist Taiyamo Denku revisits the 2013 album “Supernatural” and reworks one of its hardest tracks. Once named “Murderous Intentions”, the song carried features from Joel Ortiz and Rhymesayers artist, Sa-Roc. With the release of “Riot Control”, Taiyamo and Cypha Den Music producer Dcypha debut a souped-up, completely reworked version that appears on said project.
Renamed “Murder Intent”, Denku and Sa-Roc go on a verbal killing spree from the go. The Milwaukee emcee kicks his verse off with “Ready Player One? / Gerald Butler, I’m the looper,/ you fucking with a dragon / (pshh) meet the koopa”. Other jaw dropping metaphors can be heard thru his verse and hook.
After Taiyamo sheaths his samurai sword, Sa-Roc rushes the flank with a flurry of tongue-twisting, soul shattering syllables that leaves absolutely zero survivors. She cuts down adversaries with lines like “I’ll take you deep in the jungle / rumble without the gloves / cause it ain’t sacrifice if the win come without the blood”.
“Murder Intent”, 2 versions of “Riot Control” and a few other new tracks are now available for streaming and purchasing on Bandcamp.
Once again more than proving he’s the all-time underground collab king, Milwaukee barbarian Taiyamo Denku pieces together an incredible female trio in Rah Digga, Gavlyn and Perseph One for “Riot Control”. Featuring down right cold production ad cuts from the mind of Jihad Baracus, Denku and company bring the ruckus for nearly five minutes straight.
Taiyamo’s approach is mad scientist mixed with clever punchlines as well as the simplistic but rage inducing chorus. Flipmode Squad alum Rah Digga wastes no time going for the modern rap game’s jugular with lines like, “When the flood gates open, bunch of wack rappers think it’s time to take notice / No more B.I.G.s or Beethovens, I urge all the real emcees to stay focused”. Gavlyn and Perseph One double team “Riot Control” with a lengthy verse. Together, they put this grizzly beat into a headlock, forcing it into submission. Explosively charged cuts bring this single to a close and solidify it as a bone-jarring Hip Hop hit.
“Riot Control” is a maxi-single that features two versions of the title track along with a few bonus cuts such as the Sa-Roc featured, “Murder Intent”. The album is available for pre-order on Bandcamp.
