The Legion – ‘Joy’

Almost 25 years on from their debut record Theme + Echo = Krill, Bronx-based rap trio The Legion – Molecules, Cee-Low The Diceman, and Chucky Smash – returned to the fold. 

Having busied themselves with solo projects, various collaborations and the like, a quarter of a century on, their return as a group proper was marked by new album, Three The Bronx Way – a sublime record showcasing the timeless quality of their street-minded Boom bap. The new record is led by the aptly titled feel good banger ‘Joy’. It is a bright, breezy and bouncy tune that fuses a funky bass line with stabs of brass and ‘Cules joyful sample chop, a perfect and irresistible combination for the silky wordplay and rhymes to thrive and leave an indelible mark on your soul. This is an absolute gem of bright feelgood vibes – pure unadulterated magic.

You check out ‘Joy’ and the video below and if if that is too you liking, you listen to new record Three The Bronx Way – homage to the 1974 Blaxploitation classic, Three The Hard Way – here.
