Mic Flont, Khingz, Paolo Escobar, and the maestro of the track, Spekulation, push it along in a Seattle summertime fashion. “Can’t Wait” is about not being complacent in art and activism, two things that inform each other in the lives of these artists. Catch them all, plus the rising Dex Amora and Jamil Suleman at Columbia City Theater this Thursday (7/30).
OTOW Gang’s fearless leader KA.lil fronts this mixtape collection of tracks recorded over the course of the last three years. Fellow Operation Take Over the World crew members Massiah, Uce Wayne and Mic Flont reveal their West Coast rap affinities over a range of beats produced both in-house and jacked from classic source material. For our money the win goes to Massiah for his head-ringing “Crazy Asian Rapper Pt. 3” which does well in subverting the “all Asians are well-behaved” stereotype bolstered by racist-ass white people everywhere. Do you, bruh.
We’re four days late on the uptake here, but OTOW Gang’s Massiah and Ka.lil dropped this ode to moms (including Salma Hayek and Monica Bellucci) last Sunday, and we thought it deserved a late mention. This is the first single from the duo’s upcoming Kush & Yo Mama Jokes, undoubtedly a deadly combination. Uce Wayne behind the boards.
