Queens’ Meyhem Lauren dropped this album, Respect the Fly Shit, completely free, towards the tail end of July. In less time than it takes to receive your drug test results, Lauren recorded the album in two days and in a hotel room during everyone’s favorite outdoor indie music fest, South by Southwest. The cast of cronies Meyhem Lauren enlisted for Respect the Fly Shit makes the price of free seem like we’re back in the days of Napster. Sean Price, Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, Despot, Thirstin Howl the 3rd, Smoke DZA, my blog-mate’s new favorite emcee Riff Raff and more all join in on some raw, rugged mid-90′s-New-York-inspired raps. Tommy Mas and Harry Fraud trade-off on the production for the album; you’ll hear Fraud’s trademarked “La musica de Harry Fraud” to help differentiate the production credits.
If that roster isn’t enough, the track names alone make this album worth your mouse clicks. “Pan Seared Tilapia,” “BBQ Brisket,” “Juevos Rancheros,” and “Radioactive Tuna” just to name a few. Here’s the aforementioned “BBQ Brisket,” featuring Action Bronson and AG Da Coroner, produced by Harry Fraud:
If you like what you hear feel free to scoop it up. Grab the album here, a clean, legal Sendspace link. Let us know what you think. I think this joint is fresh. A little confused why it hasn’t been getting more internet love. Here’s to hoping TECB and our single digit fan base will cop a few downloads.
