Fresh off the 2dope video for Film the Police w/ Toki Wright, Jasiri X & Sage Francis, B. Dolan is back at it with an announcement of a new project, House of Bees v.2 (pre-orders available now: physical | digital). Check the artwork up top, a write up of what to expect below and the trailer/tracklist after the jump.
Adding to what’s already been an incredible summer for indie rap, Dolan and UK mixmaster Buddy Peace present 60 minutes of finely crafted material to shatter all expectations conjured by the word ‘mixtape’. House of Bees v.2 instead uses the lost art and it’s unconstrained format to return Dolan to his roots as an emcee, and seems to combine the raw honesty of 2008’s The Failure with the impeccable execution and bombastic feel of 2010’s Fallen House, Sunken City.
