He does this red hot night in the Town with The Dime, the Richmond (CA) duo K.Nightshift and Chioke, who are the dopest crew from the Bay to hit since the Honor Roll. Their forthcoming album Brickyard Cove is solid from top to bottom, grown and soulful with equal parts Pete Rock and Richie Rich. A taste from The Skillet:
