The combination of two amazing alternative hip-hop producers has proven in the past to be a force to be reckoned with.
Everybody raved with Madlib and J Dilla teamed up to form Jaylib. Now, Madlib's little brother Oh No (who, in all fairness has firmly established himself as a talent of his own) has followed his lead and formed the group Gangrene with hit-maker The Alchemist. The chemistry beyond the two is clearly amazing and their new LP, Gutter Water, is definitely one to check out.
Still, behind every great album there are a few sturdy b-sides. "Demons" is one of em. Evidence (of Dilated Peoples fame) and Fashawn tackle this killer beat in a truly wicked fashion (in every sense of the word).
Check it out below along with a download link. Also, be sure to look up Gutter Water and give it a try. I bet you'll dig it. AND, scroll down to catch the latest tour schedule for Gangrene. If you're in Europe, you may want to consider hopping a quick train and checking one of these sets out.
