Damn son this is nuts. From a pure production level, how they’ve managed to compress all the most bombastic elements of mid-naughties 50 Cent and Eminem into one song, whist simultaneously surpassing the ambition of those records and that retaining the peak level K-Pop glory is astounding.
Imagine if Eminem and 50 dropped a record that sounded this vast right now, rather than the tepid drain-circling misery they’ve been leaking like boiler-water for nearly a decade.
I mean, I won’t be bumping this like I am that Block B record, but still, impressive shit.
EDIT: I am bumping this like I did that Bock B record. Well played BAPS.

DUDE THIS IS DICTIONARY DEFINITION EPIC.
This joint is imbued with the sort of warrior spirit rarely seen since that Adam F album with Redman on and MOP on.
Three 6 Mafia founding member Gangsta Boo and Barcelona-based RBMA grad Sinjin Hawke team up for the likely / unlikely collaboration “Yea Hoe.” The track succeeds in translating the bare-boned Memphis sound into a club-ready hi-fi hurrah.
Built on gloomy vocal wails and big brass, the track is paced with discipline, exploding into a spectacular slice of low-slung orchestral crunk, before giving anyone a chance to take their elbows back down.

So I took the oppurtunity of a blizzard and my little brother Alexander Velky being around (he was down from Wales to visit Hercules) to shoot a video for my classic song HAPPY WHEN IT SNOWS… Alex had actually never shot a video before, but he seems to be a goodamn natural. That’s him frolicking joyfully in slow motion towards then end.
The song first appeared on ATD20, and I’d forgotten about it until someone on my Facebook suggested it last week… so big up you, wise human, for this beautiful artwork would not exist witout you.
Music by CCHG. Whoever they are. The instrumental track was called Chinaman Papa when I first heard it on a Vice playlist that has since been eradicated from history, and the internet has no record of either the band or the song. It’s as if they never existed. Very weird indeed. If anyone knows or knows anything of that band please holla at me, I wanna thank them.
ENJOY THIS FINE ARTWORK!
PEACE AND LOVE
