(Sunset) Everett-raised rapper Ripynt's latest offering, The Hurt Locker, is solid. It has several top-notch tracks ("Devil Juice," "Looky Looky," and "Blast Off," which is produced by the man with the biggest beats in town, MTK) and one outstanding track, "Shifty," which has a dusty/digital beat, lots of electronic noise and disruptions, a spastic bass, and a rap that handles the swirling chaos with great steadiness and control. When Ripynt connects, he does well. But when he really, really, really connects, he hits the whole damn thing right out of the ballpark.
