Gangster Doodles is still up to no good.
After releasing a book full of his epic illustrations in 2017, Toronto-based artist Marlon Sassy is ready to venture into the music side of things with the release of his debut compilation, Gangster Music Vol. 1.
“When I originally had the idea of doing a compilation, I started out only wanting to have five to 10 songs to try and make an EP; just something quick and dirty,” Sassy told HypeBeast. “Over the course of two years that number and concept snowballed and became somewhat of a moving target. It was only fitting that the last and final track of the compilation came in from Madlib and Oh No. As soon as that came in I knew it was a wrap. Heaven’s gate opened and the weed angels rejoiced.”
A “collection of tracks by the rappers and talent that inspire his work,” the projec arrives at 26 tracks equipped with features from Blu, Kaytranada, Max B, Jonwayne, Your Old Droog, Madlib & Oh No (“Big Whips“), and more.
