This weekend was pretty intense. DopeHouseLA was a huge success and pretty much set the tone for the rest of the Fourth of July festivities that followed. I’ve gotta be honest though, in the midst of the madness, I found myself constantly trying to contain the excitement I had for this Bears Like This Too project. Knowing it was arriving today and having to get through the extended weekend was tough – but, we’re here!
As a follow-up to last year’s Bears Like This, the Spillage Village collective – consisting of DopeHouse favorites EarthGang and J.I.D. from Atlanta, and Baltimore’s Jordxn Bryant and Hollywood JB – have returned with Bears Like This Too. An eight-track effort full of entertaining and complex lyricism over the smooth board work of Childish Major, Atom & Jon, Pacman ADV, Archibald Slim, Oxy, Christo, and Singawd.
Like what you hear? Of course you do, so be on the lookout for EarthGang’s upcoming Strays With Rabies LP and J.I.D.’s next project, Para Tu Reloaded – both due out later this year.
