Planit Hank brings together a menacing militia of emcees for “The Omen.” Canibus, Chris Rivers and Kool G Rap join forces while DJ Evil Dee puts the stamp on it on this awesome posse cut. Here’s what Hank said is the reason behind the collab.
My idea behind this song was to give hip-hop something they haven’t heard before and I always wanted to hear a Canibus and Big Pun collaboration due to the unfortunate events of Pun’s passing. Years later, thanks to Chris carrying on the torch of one of hip-hop’s Legends, hip-hop has a chance to hear these two emcees come together for the good of the culture. With the addition of G Rap, we get to also reignite that magic we heard on Allied Meta Forces. To close it out, the Legendary DJ Evil Dee from Black Moon gives us that boom bap stamp of pure hip-hop. That piece of Duck Down, with the cuts on hooks, brings it home for a song that was two decades in the making.
