In his own unique way, Tobacco can name his songs anything he wants. Take for instance this song from his forthcoming album due on May 13th called Ultima II Massage (Ghostly). He’s called this “Eruption (Gonna Get My Hair Cut At The End Of The Summer)”, and oddly enough the Soundcloud page this is featured on calls this NSFW. I was not aware that merely listening to something that may be deemed offensive is going to be heard by anyone else but you, as if you’re blasting this in your cubicle. In case you are in a public facility, you may want to plug in your headphones. Maybe the music itself is meant to be offensive, so to be safe, plug in like you were Eddie Harris.

Now that we have that out of the way…
The Hood Internet have released a new street album for the masses/them asses, and it’s called Trillwave 3, which means either you missed out on the first two installments, or this is The Hood Internet’s tribute to:
The Gap Band III
Led Zeppelin III
Peter Gabriel (1980)
Lots of tracks on this one, for a look at the complete track list, click here.
I’m going to say this once and one time only, okay? What you do with this information is not my responsibility. Okay, open your hand. OPEN IT, GOD DAMMIT!!!
Okay. The Hood Internet. Got it? Okay, now grasp your hand. Okay. Psalm One. Yes, that lady with fine rhymes and a cool voice. No no no, don’t be afraid, this equation is almost complete. Got it compiled and ready for an exponent? Now here we go. Tobacco. Not what you smoke, but that guy from Black Moth Sup…
CALL THE MEDICS. CALL THE MEDICS. CHECK THE SECURITY CAMERAS FROM THE ATM AND/OR LAUNDROMAT FOOTAGE…
AC Newman? What!?!
Sims? Wait wait wait, hold up… WHAT?!?
Yes, both of them have been borrowed audibly by The Hood Internet, into their toones ways for a track that bangs from insertion to completion. The video? It features images of beer drinking, fingernail polish application, trailer parks, boots, tattoos, bridges, and fireworks. What does it all mean? No one knows right now, but it makes for some trippy imagery. Thank director Jason Goldwatch for that, and heading to the land of mountain mamas, West Virginia, to capture the fun.
The song will be on The Hood Internet’s new album Feat, to be released this Tuesday.

Mekka-lekka-hi make-a-heiny ho!
This is from the era when shaved duvets were still not quite in, it was still “exotic” and “daring”. The lack of bulk was not seen, but soon it would be in a very smooth fashion. You may not have any idea of what I’m referring to, and you’re probably thinking “pubic hair”?
Anyway, this is a new video of a recent song taking visuals from yesteryear, and it’s fun. The track was produced by The Hood Internet, and it too is smooth and shaven.
