Now, here’s a pleasant surprise.
Earlier this year the Jake Gyllenhaal-powered film Southpaw got a relatively decent soundtrack with the likes of Eminem, 50 Cent, and others. One of the high points from the soundtrack came in the form of Logic, DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9″‘s “Mode.” While the original clocked in at just over 3 minutes, PRhyme have now released a longer – seven minutes, to be exact – version of the song. Complete with new raps from both Logic and Nickel Nine, the two go ham over Primo and Adrian Younge‘s booming backdrop.
Even better? “Mode” now serves as the first offering from the upcoming deluxe edition of their 2014 self-titled album! The special version of PRhyme will also boast features from the likes of MF DOOM (dope), Joey Bada$$ (nice), Black Thought (nice!), Phonte (nice!) and a host of others.
But they’re not done yet.
Live in New York? Good, because PRhyme will perform alongside Adrian Younge and his band Venice Dawn for a special CMJ performance on October 13th. Tickets are available now.
