It’s anyone’s guess as to why Kool A.D. is already focusing on solo work so early into his group’s genesis, but the Das Racist MC has hit the booth with a vengeance this year. We’ve already heard his mixtape The Palm Wine Drinkard, and now he intends to follow that with an album, titled 51.
He’s not taking his time either, as he plans to release the record this upcoming Tuesday. The album will, of course, feature partner in crime Heems, as well as The Coup’s Boots Riley and Main Attrakionz, as well as several others.
While the track featuring the Attrakionz, “Ticky Ticky”, has been available since early March, many have mistaken it as a brand new single, so check it out below.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
