You may have heard his album on Alpha Pup, or maybe the number of cameos he has made over the years. With luck, you may have caught his appearance on Blind Date as his friend 2Mex made sure Busdriver’s date was okay. I haven’t heard from Busdriver in awhile but he has resurfaced to my ears with “Deer God”, which is his take of the Monsters Of Folk song.
Now if you’re wondering “wait a minute, didn’t…” yes, The Roots did the same thing on their new album, but this is done from a Busdriver perspective, unique to him and his experiences. Busdriver acknowledges that he did his version after hearing The Roots do their song called “Dear God 2.0” (which had surfaced about a month before the album’s release today), so consider this simply the celebration of good music, and the return of Busdriver, as the song is a preview of his forthcoming mix CD, Computer Cooties.
