Video: billy woods - "Duck Hunt" + Album Release

Courtesy Audible Treats.

Earlier this spring, billy woods announced his latest album, History Will Absolve Me, with an April 10th release date. Since then, he's leaked a number of tracks, including the Roc Marciano- and Masai Bey-featured lead single "Body Of Work" and the most recently released non-album track "Frozen Sunlight," which features Open Mike Eagle and MarQ Spekt. Now, with April 10th finally upon us, woods is celebrating his album release with a video for the album's latest single, "Duck Hunt."

The song, produced by A.M. Breakups, is one of the eeriest on History Will Absolve Me, built around dark, bubbling synths, muted horns, and a steady drum break, which does well to compliment woods' fluid, complex flow, with bars like, "Black Robert Baden Powell, never caught without the ratchet/ Grass like Wimbeldon; wood racquet/ Rap like a simpleton, see new tax bracket/ So-called goons, turns out they schools was magnet." The video, directed by Crosby, fits the track's grimy, claustrophobic vibe, shot in cluttered rooms and decrepit hallways, red and blue tints serving to both outline and obscure.

In what is yet another incredible line up for any Hip-Hop party The Doctor’s Orders have teamed up classic golden era talent with emerging brand new skills in a combined DJ and live line up that is sure to have this great venue packed to the rafters once again!

The Pharcyde were responsible as many for the sound of classic soul drenched golden era Hip-Hop with albums like “Bizarre Ride II’ & ‘Labcabincalifornia” and singles such as ‘Passin Me By’ and the J-Dilla produced ‘Runnin’ & ‘Drop” that still tear up clubs across the world. Tonight one third of that crew in the shape of the Fatlip spins a set that shows exactly where this inspiration for these classic sounds came from.

Joining him and our crack team of residents is the very latest signing to the brilliant California based label Stones Throw that already boasts a roster including Madlib, J-Dilla, Aloe Blacc, Mayer Hawthorne and Dam Funk to name a few. The incredible Homeboy Sandman has already wowed The Doctor’s Orders faithful back in January 2011 showing that with this Ivy League education and laid back style are just one of the reasons he stands head & shoulders above many rappers. Well that and the fact he is around 9ft tall!

This is an incredible chance to party and celebrate the future and past of true school Hip-Hop so make sure you get down to On The Real.
