Having released one of the very best albums of 2021 – whether in hip hop or any genre – there’s more than enough reason to get excited about anything Pink Siifu chooses to do.
His latest move – true to his irrepressible character – is yet another unexpected move. Producer Real Bad Man has become noted for his collaborative albums with Boldy James, and now he’s reached out to record an LP with none other than Siifu, Real Bad Flights. That’s its artwork above, and it’s out September 16th.
It’s only right that the first single, “Looking for Water”, feature Boldy himself, but his presence was hardly a guaranteed thing, as Real Bad Man explains: “This was one of the first songs Siifu recorded for the project. He sent it back and it was just the first verse and chorus, and it faded out. I really wanted it to go on longer, it was fire. I had it looping on my speakers. At some point we talked and was like “I can hear Boldy on this track”, and Siifu was with it.”
Speaking about the track with Fader, Siifu elaborates, “‘Looking for Water’ is just about somebody looking for a way out or a way to get what he need from tha morning to tha night, but from my perspective. Risk and rewards and tha other bullshit that comes w tha day to day. Floatin but grinding at tha same time.”
If all this wasn’t enough reason to get excited for Real Bad Flights, the project is also set to feature Armand Hammer, among others.
