Review: Hardcore Montana – Shit Is On

Review: Hardcore Montana – Shit Is On

Hardcore Montana – Shit Is On is one of the lesser known Memphis rap albums and lesser known albums from Street Smart Records. Hardcore Montana goes hard. The album uses dated vintage eerie synths, crunched drum programming that has static, and low treble settings. The album was Hardcore Montana – Shit Is On was produced by DJ Livewire and Tommy Wright III. However Tommy Wright III took control of producing most of the album since the album was released on Street Smart Records in 1994. Tommy Wright III is slept on when it comes to beat making.

The album helped make Hardcore Montana a recognizable force in Tennessee’s underground hip hop scene, which was also followed by a tour with Tommy Wright III. Hardcore Montana describes himself as an artist that has a mixture of old school combined with a new school, more progressive vibe with Southern slang.

True Playa has that real old school rap dopeness back with some of his hard lyrics. DJ Livewire produced the beats and vinyl scratches. He was also responsible for gathering the samples. Certainly one of the bumping junts.

Everyday Situation is about the everyday crimes that occur on the mean streets of Memphis, Tennessee. These streets are often where bloody murders and robberies occur. This was because Memphis was the murder capital of the United States next to New Orleans, Flint, Oakland, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Saginaw, Los Angeles, New York City, and Detroit back in 1994. The song uses dated vintage eerie synths which make the song very haunting and morbid. Those dated vintage eerie synths make the song dope.

211 uses chords, notes, and synths from the Phantasm theme. That makes 211 sound more eerie, dark, haunting, and drastic. The song also uses a sample from the instrumental Twist Cap Back which came from DJ Livewire – Vol. 6. That is why you can hear DJ Livewire’s production and sound all over the song. The samples used in 211 were DJ Livewire – Twist Cap Back, Doug E Fresh – Play This Only At Night, and the Phantasm theme.

Act Like You Know is actually Act Like U Know which came from 10 Wanted Men – Ten Toes Down. This was the raw version.

Hardcore Montana is pimping all you bitches and hoes. Hardcore Montana eliminates al and any competition. Some people say it ain’t hard enough but his music ain’t got nothing to do with the way he busts a rhyme. I thought you knew but you didn’t. You better act like you know.

It’s time for Tommy Wright III to push a busta motherfucker off the Memphis Bridge bka Hernando de Soto Bridge which goes over the Mississippi River. So Tommy Wright III finds a busta motherfucker to push off the Memphis Bridge bka Hernando de Soto Bridge and then it is time for him to go split another nigga’s wig. Then it’s time to leave a bitch in the fucking street which is what he does afterwards. These lyrics summarize the crimes he committed, “It’s time to leave a bitch in the fucking street 6 feet deep/Time to push a busta motherfucker off the Memphis Bridge/time to split a nigga wig”

Tommy Wright III is creeping and never sleeping. A nigga like him just doesn’t care who dies. Playas gotta duck and dive. Playa hatas just can’t stop it.

I rate this album 5/5*****!
