During this year’s SXSW, Meyhem Lauren and a bunch of his friends were locked in a smoke-filled hotel room at the Embassy Suites in Austin, Texas cooking up Respect the Fly Shit.
Lauren’s LP is set for release on Thursday via Greedhead and LRG. “Special Effects” and “Peruvian Desserts,” the two tracks we have already heard from the album, were both exceptional and have created quite a buzz about the record. Today, the Queens rapper has dropped another new track, and it sustains these high expectations.
“BBQ Brisket” sees Lauren team up with Action Bronson and AG Da Coroner, two longstanding collaborators, and features production by Harry Fraud, who shares credits on the album with Tommy Mas. Fraud’s beats are at once sparkling and smooth, while the three spitters all contribute a single verse, each one more hard-edged than the last.
Meyhem Lauren’s Respect the Fly Shit is released June 28 through Greedhead and LRG. Stream “BBQ Brisket” below. [Xclusives Zone]
