One last leak off SL Jones and DJ Burn One’s upcoming Parafernalia mixtape, dropping tomorrow.
With M.E.M.P.H.I.S. everything really started with Burn One. We were kicking it over at his studio, Five Points, and he just started chopping up that crazy MJG sample. A lot of our inspiration comes from Memphis rap, so we titled the song like that out of respect. Just like with Rittz on M.D.M.A., we thought Freddie Gibbs would kill this beat, so we reached out and he killed it. He represents that uncompromising gangster shit that I relate to, that so many people identify with. And even for the people who haven’t lived that life — they can still appreciate the experience. – SL Jones
