Off Junk Science and Scott Thorough’s upcoming Phoenix Down EP, dropping May 31st on Modern Shark. A little background on the song can be found below. Also, today marks the first day of CunninLynguists Oneirology U.S. Tour in which Homeboy Sandman will be tagging alone. Check the cities/dates here.
Me and Snafu met Homeboy Sandman when we were all guests on Billy Jam’s show on WFMU last Spring. I had baked cupcakes to bring to the radio station because I heard there were going to be a lot of rappers there and I thought it would be funny to do something so un-hip-hop, cause rappers are always mean to each other unnecessarily. So I was going to come through like, ‘hey guys, I baked cupcakes for everybody.’ Anyway, while we were up there, Billy played ‘Mean Mug’ from Homeboy Sandman’s album and I was like ‘Oh, he’s on that shit too.’ We ended up going to his album release party and he came to ours, and so when Snafu and Scott started making the beats for ‘Phoenix Down’ we immediately thought of getting Boy Sand on the album. Sometime over the summer we got up and recorded this one.
