If you’re a betting man, you should know all about upping the ante – which is exactly what the Typical Cats accomplish on the introduction to their upcoming full-length “Civil Service.”

The first 12” from “Civil Service,” “Easy Cause It Is,” features an upbeat, old school sounding, and scratched-up anthem firing back at the haters and critics of the underground. Qwel, Qwazaar, and Denizen Kane all spit fiery anti-industry verses effortlessly surrounded by the voices of the likes of Fat Joe on the record. They do make it look “easy cause it is” over a head-nodding boom-bap production that “easily” should capture some spins from the hardcore underground hip-hop fan.

B-side “Justice Coming,” the slow piano-droned ode to the strong arm of the law, incorporates a catchy singsong hook that works well over the introspective track. And the just-as-willing “Butterfly Knives” works well with the theme of anti-industry, but does so more proactively than “Easy Cause It Is” and calls out the liars and fake ballers of the hip-hop industry.

If it really is “easy cause it is,” watch for Typical Cats’ “Civil Service” dropping in October, upping the ante and robbing the tedious mainstream blind.
