Blu f/ R.A. The Rugged Man x Tristate of Durag Dynasty – “Thelonious King”

thelonius-1

Nature Sounds has unleashed a monster for the backpack crowd with “Thelonius King,” featuring three of the label’s sharper emcees – Blu, R.A. The Rugged Man and Tristate of Durag Dynasty – as Bombay provides the canvas for the collaboration, and it sounds like a gritty Madlib production.

As a complete aside. I was expecting Ghostface to yell out “it’s me y’all” halfway into the song, but I digress. All the participants could release albums this year [Durag Dynasty in March, R.A. The Rugged Man in April and Blu sometime later] so this a good way to start 2013. This is also rumoured to see release as a limited edition 7″ for Record Store Day. As long they use the above artwork in some fashion, I’m sold.
