Brand spankin' new Mr. Lif: "Brothaz"
(Contributor's note: If you didn't tune in over the weekend, you're in for a surprise. I'm not Chris. No, our friend Chris is off at SXSW, leaving me to keep watch of his estate here. Hope you enjoy ... Kevin.)
This track is so new and so ahead of the curve that I had to reserve it for Gorilla vs. Bear; I know Chris would be proud.
Mr. Lif -- Definitive Jux recording artist, one-third of The Perceptionists and politically aware emcee from Boston -- is getting set to drop his full-length Mo Mega in June. With his socially conscious flows, it's not uncommon to see Lif compared to Chuck D or KRS-One. Frankly, we could use a bit of that knowledge as the baton is passed to the next generation.
His style makes him a perfect fit on the Def Jux label, manned by the inimitable El-P, who happens to produce this new track.
(Word of warning: This track appears to be a promo with a voice briefly dubbed over at parts announcing the new record. That's just how new and outta-the-box this track is!)
