Parquet Courts - Captive Of The Sun ft. Bun B b/w Chopped Not Slopped Remix (12")

$12.99

Limited to 550 copies.

When Parquet Courts made their second television appearance supporting 2016’s brilliant Human Performance LP, they were joined on Late Night with Stephen Colbert by a very special surprise guest, rapper Bun B (of UGK), who added a verse to the album’s percussive, lyrically-dense “Captive of the Sun.”

What fans of both artists may not know, is that Bun B, a huge fan of Parquet Courts (whose Austin Brown, a Houston rap acolyte, is himself a Bun B & UGK superfan), already had a studio version of the track featuring his guest verse in the works.

This brilliant meeting of the minds is now available on a club- ready 12”, with a B-side featuring the track as remixed by two more legendary Houstonians, DJ Candlestick & OG Ron C, whose “Chopped Not Slopped” edition brings plenty of purple codeine haze to the party.
