Rucci and AzChike just get it. They exude everything it is to be from the West Coast. Moreover, they specialize in crafting bangers for hood functions. Today, the Los Angeles duo reveals the tracklist and release date for their first-ever collab album Kourtesy Of Us, coming for your neck on October 8th. Like any hall of fame-worthy pair, the interplay between Rucci and AzChike is a study in contrasts. Moreover, Rucci attacks the beat with a breakneck, snapping flow, while Chike’s oblique delivery finds hidden pockets in instrumentals. Thus helping his disrespectful punchlines stand out.
Both emcees are united by their willingness to say absolutely anything on the mic. Whether they’re stacking outrageous flexes or elucidating details of their chaotic pasts. Featuring production from L.A. maestros like Cypress Moreno, AceTheFace, Hitman, Bruce24k, and more, and guest spots from Kamaiyah, Boosie Badazz, Haiti Babii, Capolow, and many more, Kourtesy Of Us is available for pre-save/pre-order via Mackk&Cult/EMPIRE.
Rucci & AzChike Are A Disrespectful Yet Dynamic Duo
“Hoodrat” is the latest in a line of fiery collaborations between AzChike and Rucci to hit the streets this year. The two rappers connected with Capolow for “No Kizzy,” a Bay-meets-L.A. banger, took aim at steppers on “Who Dat,” and earlier, they honed their chemistry with the rip-roaring “Pop Pills.” People know them in the streets of L.A. for creating multiple local hits, most notably 2020’s “Function In The Hood” and 2018’s “Light It Up”. Moreover, both artists are continuing the momentum from big 2020s. Rucci continued to explore his fascinating backstory with the Midget album, featuring the hit single “Understand” ft. Blxst, and AzChike kept busy with hard-hitting EPs and collaborations with Sada Baby and Frostydasnowmann.
