There are some events that warrant my coming out of temporary rap writing retirement to light a post up. One of those occasions is when my favorite rap troupe to come out of Boston in a minute teams up with an MC who I hold on a pedestal above all others.
The other instance, that in this case called for me to get blogging, was that the resulting track of the scenario described above – despite being low down, thoughtful, and filthy underground – got a small slice of commercial shine, and is featured in the new Converse X UNDFTD ad.
Of course I'm talking about the union of Grey Sky Appeal and Qwel, the combined product of which I'm pleased to drop right here, right now. It's called “Brains,” and if you fucking have any, then you're already bobbing your noggin into convulsions.
Grey Sky Appeal and Qwel - Brains by greyskyappeal
This shit bangs like Friday night with a fistful of Bolivian marching powder, plus packs that utilitarian gusto that GSA and Qwel can be relied on to push heavily. There may be “100,000 MCs who all sound the same," but you won't find any of that shit here. Not on my watch.
Grey Sky Appeal and Galapagos4 recording artist Qwel present their first single 'BRAINS' aka Cervelle de veau, off their upcoming EP, OCCAM'S RAZOR. Release date to be announced soon; pre-sales will be EXCLUSIVELY through UGHH.com
