Eat Pray Thug
(Greedhead/Megaforce) is the forthcoming album from Das Racist founder Heems that will be out on March 10th, but you will not have to wait two months to hear something from it. Listen to “Sometimes” right here.
This is not the new face or look of pop, but rather the little acknowledged appearance of pop, if not one that people have denied. Looking at him, you might say “Nick Koenig definitely fits into his name”, which is why he makes and releases music as Hot Sugar. He just came out with an album-length EP called Man Made, featuring appearances from the likes of Heems, Open Mike Eagle, Big Baby Gandhi, KOOL AD, Antwon, and many others, and if you are a fany of them, you will be pleasantly surprised at what everyone has contributed here.
What are soup boys? Who are the soup boys? What do they look like? Heems & Lushlife are certain they know these answers, and have created the soundtrack for those inquiries but now with Botany (shown above), a remix has been made to give those answers a new perspective.
The focus of this post is not so much Heems or Lushlife, but Botany, whose debut album, Lava Diviner (Truestory) (Western Vinyl), will be released on the 29th of October. He has a small handful of concert dates in Texas coming up, so check him out. When you do, yell out “SOUP BOYS, MALFAKIS!” He will know you loved his remix. Now the concert dates:
September 28… Dallas, TX (Prophet Bar) Ω
October 4… Fort Worth, TX (Shipping and Receiving) *
October 20… Dallas, TX (Hermann Hallv ^
Ω = w/ Porcelain Raft
* = w/ Ronnie Heart
^ = w/ This Will Destroy You
The video is short, but it’s a banger. Meyhem Lauren
brought in Heems
and Action Bronson
for the extra cool “Special Effects”, and as for the video, Meyhem didn’t have to look too far for Heems put everything together to make things look as cool as the music itself.
The song is from Meyhem’s forthcoming album Respect The Fly Shit, due out later this summer.
