Featuring rappers Frace, Lucas, and Merk, the group Pak X Emh are known by day as professional Motorcoss riders Brad Frace, Justin Bogle, and Garrett Merkin, respectively. That may lead one to believe that their debut album, Highly Overdue, is a just a bunch of buds having hip-hop fun after hours, but this alternative and indie leaning release takes itself seriously and prefers to travel the adventurous route. Frace is more than proud to announce "I made every beat on this shit" during the great cloud rap track "On the Hill," while "Hard to Believe" is a B.o.B.-type ballad that doesn't fall prey to that style's cliches. Check the title track for a hard banger with an inescapable hook.
