“I wanted to come with a record that could make suburban hood niggas feel proud, while still showing love to Harlem where I stay. My friend Belief came through with all the production on the tape. Post-Apocalypse boom bap shit, with non-corny sprinkles of trap and electro. I think we dug a little deeper without being all over intellectual and shit. SUB.”
Last time we saw Harlem’s Kyle Rapps he was being a big-mouthed baby in his “Watch Out” video. His new video “Super Glue”, that sees him team up with Noisey favourite Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, is even better: Kyle’s free flows and flowing dreads are cut with dirty bits from vintage pornos. It’s basically the best chat-up line we’ve ever heard, with Kyle providing a five point plan on how take a girl home.
Following critically-acclaimed sets with seminal underground hip hop trio Company Flow on both weekends at this past Coachella festival, iconic Brooklyn rapper and producer El-P has announced a string of headlining dates presented by Karmaloop and supported by a cast of rising hip-hop talent including Killer Mike, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire and Despot.
To get you kids amped for one of the best tours this summer, we linked up with the homie DJ Trackstar to mix a compilation of the Into the Wild Tour headliners ahead of the June 19 kick-off in Atlanta, Georgia.
