"Sleepover" is a wacky, hip-hop mash-up with Klezmer accordions and lyrics that seem to poke fun at rap's obsession with "booty". Sleepover releases today in digital form.
 

Montreal’s real life Klezmer hip-hopper is releasing his latest album, Sleepover, today in digital form. The physical release will follow later this summer. “Sleepover” is a wacky, hip-hop mash-up with Klezmer accordions and lyrics that seem to poke fun at rap’s obsession with “booty”. We love Socalled’s mixed-up genre stew here at PopMatters, with Ghettoblaster being one of 2007’s highlights. Following that record’s release, Socalled traveled the world lecturing and teaching masters classes. For the new album, he has teamed with some 34 musicians, including Chilly Gonzales, Irving Fields, Fred Wesley of the JB Horns, C-Rayz Walz.
