RNB millionaires

West Oakland’s RNB Millionaires just dropped a syrupy one-off track “You Know” with their pals Andre Martel (of LA’s Shadowrunners) and autotune whiz-kid Sad Andy. RNB Millionaires, a duo starring rapper Justin Loans and rapper/producer Jay Casio, began with a freestyle session at a “sloppy Oakland punk house show” about three years ago, and they’ve been collaborating ever since, playing shows with everyone from Shannon and the Clams to Das Racist. They’re also members of Oakland party collective Trill Team 6, and their sound fits in perfectly with the slightly dark but always fun Bay Area party music that seems to resonate from the Oakland hip-hop scene. Casio is planning to release a solo EP later this year, while RNB Millionaires are planning to release their next project in early 2014. Also, make sure you check out the feature on Sad Andy on Noisey, where he is dubbed “Our Broken World’s Last Hope” and compared to Beethoven. Listen to “You Know” below.
