iTunes Review

Bridging the Gap is a collaboration between two Brooklyn rappers from different generations. Chubb Rock came of age as a hip-hop stylist and innovator in '80s New York, while Wordsmith earned his stripes a decade later as a well-respected freestyler. As emcees, both adhere to traditional New York values, but Bridging the Gap succeeds because it spends more time expressing love for hip-hop than it does complaining about current trends. Even more surprising is that the elder rapper is the more vital. Twenty-five years after his debut, Chubb can still turn a phrase like no one else in the game.

Please check this music out

great effort from two great artists...nobody hustles like Wordsmith and you can see the work ethic reflected in the material

Wordsmith is on his game!

Wordsmith has to be one of the best unsigned artists out there today. Lyrically, he's intelligent, a pleasure to listen to, and an antidote against all the garbage hip hop that invades the airwaves in today's commercial markets. Despite Chubb's name, Wordsmith completely carries this record. The production by Strada is fantastic and each song is catchy and memorable. Can't wait to here more from this dude.


Yo! Wordsmith is a beast when it comes to this music thing. One of the most creative artist I have a ever heard. And I say say artist because he is definately not just a rapper. This album with Chubb Rock is great and I can not wait for Words album to drop. VINTAGE EXPERIENCE drops on March 30. I can t wait I know for a fact Word has cooked up some hot materail on this one....NU REVOLUTION all day...
