"The one MC that you might not be familiar with is Chicago rapper, Racecar. As you can clearly hear on 'Devils Hand', Racecar's buttery flow is polished and refined; his vocals smooth and serpent-like but with enough bite to sting your senses. If you like what you hear on this record then I would highly recommend checking out his material with K-Kruz as Modill. Their 2006 debut album, Midnight Green, still gets play from me to this very day. All you backpacks-full-of-jazz cats will love what you hear.
