Boomkat Product Review:
Pusha T and Malice’s coke rap classic gets a re-up on wax for anyone who missed out, slanging some of the most sparse and hard hitting, future-proof productions of the 2000’s - still sounding f*cking relentlessly killer 15 years later.
When it came out in 2006 - after much publicised delays caused by record label/industry bullshit - it was basically an insta-classic, fuelled by raw and uncut rhymes and double, even triple entendres about that yayo - the best to ever to come out of Virginia Beach, USA. But, of course, those bars wouldn’t hit as hard without that Neptunes’ production, all space and full of bite, snap and wooze. You have to ask - is there a better album produced by The Neptunes? We’d say probably not.
“We always intended to win by being left of center,” said Pusha a while back, and that’s the unique thing about 'Hell Hath No Fury’, it does it all its own way, sounds like nothing else - still doesn’t - and still sold 80,000 copies on the first week of its release. Basically, one of the greatest records of the 2000’s.
