Video: Typical Cats - "Bitter Cold" (Directed by Jam One)
As summer approaches, Typical Cats return with another gem, a blistering slab of frosted lunacy entitled “Bitter Cold.” One of a constellation of Qwel solo shots from TC’s latest (3, G4), “Bitter Cold” marries a sinister Natural beat that swings like a gypsy funeral with inspired verses from TC’s resident embedded journalist. Qwel rasps like a man knocking at the lid of his coffin. He examines the rampant nihilism of post-Keef Chicago while sparring pugilistic drums and a swirling zydeco sample.
Phene + Ducko McFli connect on a new record called "Godspeed", recorded in Atlanta where both artists are quickly building a name for themselves & embarking on a journey from the underground to your living room.
You've heard the song. Now witness the video. Bootleg Bartenders is nothing short of monkey business when Mad Dukez saddles up for a night of shots and shenanigans. From the eyes of the bartender, get a taste of the drunken revelry from the other side of the bar.
