Kant B Caught

Caught Up

Knok Out

Lucc says, in the liner notes “My fuc U’s: EOCI and all correctional facilities, this is one nigga you missed catchin up.” Kant B Caught is tremendously well-executed rap. Now if they could learn to spell. Kant B Caught rap about hos, going to jail, getting out of jail, fights with other niggas, survival in the city, and an awful lot about love. Even their song “Punk Hos” is really a love ballad. I was thrown for a loop by “Bloc Party,” because I get the joke.
