Underground producer Cartel, one half of the Hoodgrown Productions duo, makes his debut with a throwback album of sorts. Combing hard beats provided by him and “real” lyrics from some of illest new upcoming artists on the scene, Cartel’s Prepare For Glory represents a time when hip hop was still about “beats & rhymes”. This album features one of the last songs (”Certified Hoodstars”), recorded with Stack Bundles before his untimely death.
