Matter Ov Fact and EP are back with a free EP of new material. Some of the beats are leaning towards a more ‘modern’ sound but the raps are still that classic Shark Nation deviates flow.
It’s almost as if this Clay Skipper guy read the entire Weed Carriers website from front-to-back and tried to act like he birthed this shit. First Google obliterated all traces of my Guide To Glo Gang Weed Carriers post after Blood Money was murdered the day after I profiled him, and now this? This is actually the second time I’ve caught the Gentleman’s Quarterly trying to claim the Weed Carrier term as their own. It’s enough to make me want to get my Fury Road on and start spitting petrol into my car engines air intake so I can cut this fuckery off at the turn. Thanks to the eagle-eyed NuJerooz for the tip.
One of my picks of the new Peace Kehd litter gets a video clip. Shopping trolley pimping.
Forgot to post this last month, but in case your sitting on the fence about copping the latest chapter in the Doppel Gospel, you can stream the entire Peace Kehd LP before grabbing the CD or vinyl.
“Shorty teeth lookin’ like her tongue in jail”. Peace Kehd drops next month.
The Groggy Pack and Bambi Rose are gafflin’ for left-overs on this cut from Marco Polo‘s PA 2: The Director’s Cut, which has a series of collectible vinyl editions available through Slice of Spice soon.
The Doppelgangaz brought some Shark Life to S.O.B.’s on Monday 24 June, 2013 as part of a showcase that included Fred The Godson show. Features a cameo from DJ Kay Slay aka DEZ and his Straight Stuntin‘ girls, as well as the ever-lovely Bambie-Rose. Songs performed include “Sun Shine”, “Like What Like Me” and “Oh Well”.
Here’s the latest video from Hark, featuring some quality Rap Hands action from yours truly, as well as bastardized attempt at the G-Dep Harlem Shake.
Video number five from the Hark LP. Rack ’em up…
Can’t stop, don’t stop, rocking with that Doppz shit. Latest from the Hark LP.
This is a quick compilation of footage from The Doppelgangaz recent European tour. Look out for a video to “Barbiturates” next week.
Push ya wig bag. Hark is out now.
Since their debut EP, The Ghastly Duo, in 2008, Matter Ov Fact and EP have gone from strength to strength, having released four full-length projects and a couple of free beat tapes. With Hark out next week, it’s the prefect time to take a look back at some of their finest work from the past five years.
Preview the new Doppelgangaz album Hark, and pre-order here if you fux with it. Black Cloak lifestyle continues, although I’m still waiting for my Dapper Dan Gucci cloak to arrive.
“We’re all going to hell in a hand-basket…oh well”. The Doppelgangaz drop Hark on March 12.
This is the clip to the new Doppz single. Album drops 12 March, hopefully with a Dapper Dan Gucci Black Cloak bundle as I suggested.
First single from the new Doppelgangaz album, HARK, which drops March 12. Another sure-shot from Matter Ov Fact and EP.
While the music press was busy sweating Das Racist, EP and Matter Ov Fact have been carving-out a loyal following over the last couple of years with their unique brand of Sharking Rap, which combines laid-back beats with often disturbing lyrical content to create a records that don’t sound like anything else right now. Having originally interviewed the crew in 2010, I was only recently able to retrieve the tapes from the FBI to transcribe them, so I built with them again to her about what they’ve been doing since and combined the highlights from both sessions into what is clearly the only Doppz interview yo’ll ever need to read.
Robbie: What set you guys off on this path to make music?
EP: We were part of this big boy band – I don’t even know him! [laughs] Nah, we’ve known each other since little kids, man. Just growing-up, loving raw rap music, always watching videos. It started off, ‘Do you think we can do this?’ then started turning into, ‘Should we try to do this?’ Next thing you know we were doing it – pause. We were like, ‘We have a vision for this, let’s do this for real. We can definitely bring something different than what’s going on right now.’ Especially for dude’s that are our age – we had that more raw sound. Thankfully, it’s been received real well. And definitely have to thank you – after it was on Unkut, it’s crazy how many people were checking for us. You’re definitely the catalyst. We could thank you all day.
The Ghastly Duo get Apathy to assist on this remix of the highlight from Beats From Brothels Vol.2. Grab the download from here.
Shark Nation stand-up!
Best track from Beats For Brothels Vol 2 gets a video documenting the Groggy Pack’s Hip-Hop Kemp antics…
Get that Beats For Brothels, Vol. 2 if you haven’t already. Shark season continues…
I was checking out Beats For Brothels Vol.2 on the iron horse, enjoying the Hydrabeats style head-nod material, when seemingly out of nowhere they stepped into a Hell On Earth/War Report chamber with this killer cut. Verse two in particular captures that Iman THUG/Trag feel in just the right way. Good to see Matter-Ov-Fact and EP seem to have gathered a strong fanbase, you know Unkut Dot Com has been down with the Sharking movement since day dot…
Let them cow grow,cuz!
Don’t have the budget for video hoes? Grab an old doll out the dumpster. Third video from Lone Sharks.
