Semi-Hendrix drops a new single on us, in preparation of their album Breakfast at Banksy’s which is slated to drop October 16th.
The duo formed following Splash’s world tour with his underground cult funk band, Plantlife. Upon its conclusion, the 10-time Grammy-nominated producer and three-time winner decided to leave Miami in favor of Los Angeles. For the native Angeleno, this was where it all began. He’d seen incredible success over the previous decade, producing for Cee-Lo, Alicia Keys, Kendrick Lamar, and a slew of others. But he wanted to return to his roots and make a pure hip-hop album, a passion project with no input from industry types.
Canibus, Killah Priest, Kurupt, & Ras Kass join forces once again to bring us another heater. These four need to drop another mixtape/album or something. I also wouldn’t mind seeing a Slaughterhouse/Four Horsemen collabo.
Today the fresh team of Apollo Brown & Ras Kass are joined by a legendary cast of Royce The 5’9”, Xzibit, & Bishop Lamont. The new single, Giraffe P*ssy, brings together the distinguished MCs to showcase their abilities over sixteen bars a piece. The vocalists get high over an Apollo Brown beat, who’s filtered tone and syncopated bounce will have your head nodding as high as…
Yo….this sample is vicious! Apollo Brown shit on this one. Ras Kass, Pharoahe Monch, and Dilated People‘s Rakaa Iriscience go in on it too! This one is from Apollo Brown’s & Ras Kass “Blasphemy” set to drop Oct. 28th. Listen.
