Rukka’s latest release, Black Fire Lava Chief, is a 7 track tape full of some soon-to-be classic Hawaii hip-hop. Features include Joncozy, Punahele, Cruise & Shikz with production from the boy Shrxxmhead and BN5stax. This project highlights a lot of what I enjoyed from his previous album; especially on Early Birds and Paddle Out. Cozy & Punahele killed their verses on this tape! He speaks about living and loving life, getting high & making the best out of what we have here on Oahu (the good life). My three favorite tracks are provided below, the two mentioned above and Glassface. I always look forward to hearing new material from Rukka, one of my favorite local artists.
