“Gotchoo”, a track from the forthcoming debut album by the Birmingham, Alabama hip-hop outfit the Green Seed, promises “beats by the pound” and “flavor in the rhyme” within its first 30 seconds. The album itself, entitled Drapetomania (say druh-pet-oh-may-nee-uh) promises to be a firm statement of intent for the group, who take simple beats and loops and, in the spirit of great-hip hop, aim to elevate them into new rhythmic territories.
Drapetomania is out on July 15th via Communicating Vessels.
