1. NEW MUSIC: Bumpy Knuckles ft. Flavor Flav – “Shake the Room” (prod. by DJ Premier).

    There’s some risk inherent to a track that features both Bumpy Knuckles and Flavor Flav (produced by DJ Premier , no less). Mainly because you figure the actual song would inevitably pale in comparison to whatever imagined conversation took place when these dudes were in a room together (assuming they were, in fact, actually in a room together). “Shake the Room,” though, works largely based on the fact that Bumpy and Preem’s chemistry is still rock solid after all these years. Flav’s chorus contribution is probably what you’d expect (although, he says “club banger,” so maybe you wouldn’t expect that). Premier’s beat sounds kinda like “Nas Is Like” but with a noticeable uptick in the chaotic static and sampled noise. (Absolutely a good thing, BTW.) As usual, Bumpy/Freddie shares the sort of opinions we want him to get off his chest (e.g. “These punk ass niggas with they blow job deals/ I miss Guru – fuck how Solaar feels”). Listen below. Bumpy Knuckles’ The KoleXXXion drops March 27th via Works of Mart/Gracie Productions.
