The dynamic duo behind 2013’s Best Hip-Hop Album — local rapper Kaby and producer Nathan Zensen — are back with some new music, their first offering of the year. “I Don’t Know” is an infectious bumper with a tongue-in-cheek hook that Kaby rides with much ease. It’s the kind of song you play two times through, every time. Yes, it’s that infectious. Hear it below or via Soundcloud.
The single comes courtesy of LitVisions, a hip-hop collective that includes Kaby and P.A. Lit, among others. Kaby is even releasing this single under the moniker LitKaby. We hope that means what we think it means. If so, keeps your ears peeled for a LitVisions collaborative project.
Gee Slab and Petty’s new single is something that flew under our radar when it initially dropped a few weeks back. “Embarrassin’ Us” is the first single from Gee Slab’s upcoming project, MALCOLM LITTLE, slated to debut in March. The single finds Gee Slab and Petty disgruntled with the current state of affairs, and what seems to be a general lack of culture. The cover art features several public figures who have purportedly embarrassed us in recent times, including but not limited to Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus, Chris Brown, Trinidad James, R. Kelly and George W. Bush.
Petty provides the hook, while Gee Slab flows passionately over a couple of verses. “Embarrassin’ Us” is a pretty clever song. A good dose of wit is something we can always appreciate in hip-hop. Hear it below, or download it via Gee Slab's Bandcamp page.
