Z-MAN- “Shootin’ Sugar” (Unreleased Dope or Dogfood demo)

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

This one’s a personal favorite of mine from Z-Man that was made during the Dope or Dogfood sessions. If I remember correctly the beat ended up going to someone else so it couldn’t be on the album. Z really goes in on this jazzy loop produced by moSS dropping lots of quotable lines. Put it on repeat and kick back.

Fuck it here’s another one from the same time that became a live staple for awhile. Roll up tho.

White Mic & Deuce Eclipse – The Vegetable & The Bandidos

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

white miveggie bandidos

White Mic returns this time teaming up with Deuce Eclipse as The Vegetable and The Bandidos. The album starts with a dope title track produced by Brycon and never lets up. Its a socially and politically conscious album done right. Top notch lyricism matched with equally great production. I cannot recommend this enough. An incredible addition to both artists catalog. Can’t forget the sick cover art by Z-MAN.
