Limited edition 10" vinyl pressing of Long Beach, CA rapper Vince Staple's six-track EP Prima Donna. Originally issued in August 2016 as the follow-up to Staple's acclaimed double-LP debut, Summertime '06, the raw, unhinged EP features production from DJ Dahi, James Blake, John Hill and No I.D. and guest contributions from A$AP Rocky and Kilo Kash. Staple on his inspiration for the release to Rolling Stone: "I just know I never want to do the same thing twice. I don't care about any of this shit. I don't care about album sales, I don't care about the radio. I just want to do cool shit, because that's what everybody was doing in time periods that matter. You gotta think about it: We're about to have probably a decade or 20 years of music that no one remembers anything from. Like, who's the rock star right now? We got Kanye West, that's it. That's fucking sad. There are no Mick Jaggers, no Steve Tylers, none of those fucking people. No Keith Richards. That shit doesn't exist anymore. No fucking Jimi Hendrix."
Hot off his collaboration with Madlib and MED (Bad Neighbor), SoCal ambassador Blu has teamed up with the Paris-based production team UNION to present “LA COUNTING”, the lead single off their forthcoming album Cheetah in the City. Featuring remixes by Exile, Dibiase, and Yann Kesz, this limited edition picture disc 10” delivers Blu’s lyrical love letter to Los Angeles while UNION’S synth-soaked production marks a stylistic sea change for the Below the Heavens MC. Rippling with 808s and cinematic strings, LA COUNTING is an organic evolution from the signature keyboard-driven sound that put UNION on the map in 2012 with Analogtronics, their debut album featuring Talib Kweli, MF DOOM, Elzhi, Guilty Simpson, and more. Cheetah in the City will be released later this year on Fat Beats Records, but until then the world will have to keep LA COUNTING.
Music can be both armor and ammunition. It can help surmount obstacles, heal wounds, or offer invincibility. On rare occasions, records can encompass all these distinct ideas. That s where the producers in LA s Glitch Mob exist in that timeless space where infectious anthems elicit maximum emotion. Piece of the Indestructible represents a continuation of the story from their sophomore album, last year s Love, Death, and Immortality. Piece of the Indestructible, offers the requisite concussive bass, foundation-rattling drums, and soul-liquefying synths while revealing the versatility of edIT (Edward Ma), Boreta (Justin Boreta) and Ooah (Josh Mayer). The entirety of the new EP was written at the group's respective home studios. The process was spontaneous and raw. The product is pure energy. This deluxe edition vinyl EP includes a gold & black splatter one-sided 10" vinyl with etching, gold foil printed sleeve housed in a special PVC jacket, and a digital download of the EP.
