Beans Beans (aka Mr. Ballbeam) is back to shatter your silly notions of "next-level" hip-hop with Shock City Maverick. Bean's second solo long-player since the disbandment of NYC's legendary Anti-Pop Consortium is a Molotov cocktail of chunky, psychedelic electro-hop and loquacious avant-rap narrative.

Bumping in your ride, burning up your iPod or rattling windows in your home system, Shock City Maverick is the most creative hip-hop album you'll hear all year, and this fly rhyme sayer drops some of the catchiest left field neck snappers you've ever heard.
