Che Noir - The Thrill Of The Hunt 2: Head Of Goliath (CD)
While there are plenty of ladies repping in Hip-Hop in 2019, it still seems like a prerequisite for them to show some T&A to get ahead. Well, the Buffalo born and raised master of ceremony known as Che Noir is about to change all that. Not since the mid-‘90s has there been such a strong earth in the game that doesn’t use sex to sell. She is reminiscent of hardcore female emcees that held it down in the Golden Era like Bahamadia, Lady of Rage, and Heather B. Noir has the ideal mix of bars, flow, and engaging content. And although she has only been on the scene for three years, this 24 year-old is already recognized as a problem. She has shared the mic with her label boss 38 Spesh, Benny The Butcher, Elcamino, Jamal Gasol, and she has more than held her own on each and every song.
To prove how nice she is, Che gave listeners the 'The Thrill of the Hunt' mixtape last year, which had her ripping up classic East Coast beats like Fabolous’s “Breathe,” Total’s “Can’t You See,” and NORE’s “Banned From TV.” Then, she was invited to appear on 38 Spesh’s 'Son of G Ra' album on the DJ Premier-produced “Young 1s,” which also featured Anthony Hamilton. Her ill verse on that cut lead to her guesting on every 38 Spesh project since, including '38 Strategies of Raw' and '5 Shots'. Further, she is a major presence on the recently released 'Trust Tape 3', catching bodies on five of the album’s fourteen songs.
Now, it's time to hit heads with the next phase of her evolution, 'The Thrill of the Hunt 2'. This offering is wholly produced by 38 Spesh and offers listeners a taste of what's to come. This is the drop that will set her apart from the comp. It features appearances by Eto, Planet Asia, Termanology, and of course Spesh himself.
If you stay up on The Joe Budden Podcast with Rory & Mal, you know the team up there loves her. And her buzz in the streets has reached deafening levels. Despite all that, it will only take one listen to 'The Thrill of the Hunt 2' for you to make up your own mind that Che Noir got next.
