City anthems and posse cuts definitely need to make more of a comeback, and with this unifying track celebrating the CO, SP Double, Innerstate Ike, Morning Star, Young Doe and C.Ray are doing their part to make that happen. Produced by C. Ray, "Welcome to the CO" finds these guys going hard representing their city.

With a hook from C. Ray that recalls Nate Dogg, the MCs spit lines about being the kings of their city, or some variation thereof. Innerstate Ike brings the first real hard-knock lines -- about having more shots than a bartender repping the 'Bell side -- while being gracefully supported by Young Doe's verse.

Doe steals it with lines about his city's murder squad being akin to OJ Simpson and Johnnie Cochran, while Morning Star acts as "lieutenant." C. Ray is also on production and facilitates a welcome diversity in flow from SP Double, who largely spits about unity and wearing a "crown made of the city's skyline." Nice job, fellas.

its a great song all the way across... unity is great and we can talk about how great it is to see these artists working together but in my opinion its just amazing music. People tend to focus too much on the negative and "haters"

shits dope and all of these artists are on my top list of rappers period not just locally

I heard that some notable folks said Young Doe didn't even deserve to be on the track with his verse, he stole it? I don't think so. Did you even listen to Morning Star's verse? Maybe someone should break it down for you...he is not the one you should be messing with, not a square, too fly! BOXX STATE! If you are going to take the time to do a review you should maybe listen tot eh song more than once and try giving everyone one the record their due shine. It's such a shame to see dumb people pose as "journalists" when all they really have a talent for is spouting unfounded opinions and jockin rappers.

^^^^ LOL. I'm pretty sure that's what I read, too. Someone is feelin excessively sensitive. Only in Denver do rapper's get good reviews misinterpreted as "spouting unfounded opinions and jockin [the other] rappers."
