We've heard several songs from Not the 1's off their forthcoming LP, and they seem to a have a pretty great formula: write rhymes that take great joy in boastfully talking trash and lay them over beats that combine big classic drum breaks with modern effects from a variety of talented producers.
Today, we're giving you the first listen of their track "Not the Ones to be Gamed On" in which Mawnstr and Cuzzo D take great pride in not changing their ways to land a girl - how can one settle down when you're "meeting ladies on the road stayin' constantly laid"? The difficult-to-google Edison Victrola provides the beat, which pulls a perfect vocal sample from Showbiz & A.G. and some of those massive drums that Not the 1's thankfully continue to employ. Check it out below.
Everybody's Rappin is set for a June 10 release on vinyl picture disc from Gold Robot Records, but you can preorder now. The album features production from label mates Yalls and Monster Rally and guest verses from Kool Keith and Riff Raff. Plus check out that picture disc art! You just KNOW this album will be fun.
