Enels of Grimewav & G Fam Black of Knuckle Dragguz align to form a new team called 1692. This is their hard hitting, self titled debut offering under this new alliance and it slaps in a big way. The grimy undertone is ever present, but both emcees have a very different flow and delivery. When tag teaming over dope production, they are a force to be reckoned with and ‘1962‘ shows us that in spades.

Peep the epic artwork and you’ll find imagery that assists you in putting together the 1692 with the Salem Witch Trials. And if you’re looking for evidence of the ‘other-worldly’ then just spin this bad boy from start to finish. Sure, ‘Abdullah The Butcher‘ and ‘A Grip‘ gave us a taste of what was to come, but from the opening track you get your headphones caved in with heavy beats, lyrical slaughter and creative flow.

Very few features on the debut as well, but the ones that do appear are razor sharp. Mo Rukuz features on ‘The Cauldron‘ while Oblivious joins the duo for ‘The Mobb‘. The beats are crafted by some of the usual suspects – fellow Knuckle Dragguz Cloaq x Dagger, Bo Faat, Crack Sizzlack and Enels himself with the opening jawn delivered by UglyJon.

Bangers: , Eviction Notice, Abdullah The Butcher, Stop Lying, MurdaMass

Score: 8.5 / 10. A truly inspiring debut from 1692 and we can’t wait to hear more of what they have in store. This album really sets the scene and showcases what Enels and G Fam Black can do and the sky is the limit now. Violent, raw, hardcore bars from two of the dopest underground cats out right now. Get on board or get burned.
