Back in April, New York hip hop artist ELUCID released his revelatory third album, Save Yourself, through Backwoodz Studioz. Above, you can hear a remix of the project's penultimate track courtesy of Milo. If there's any rapper/producer thoughtful enough to pull off this remix, it's Milo, so we're stoked to debut it.

Hope you dig it; if so, check out the album here:

Armand Hammer - "B.E.T."

New TracksadminComment

New York MCs Billy Woods and Elucid are teaming up once again as Armand Hammer. They'll be dropping a new EP soon, and the track "B.E.T." will be one of the tracks featured on it. The title: Furtive Movements, and it's dropping August 5th.

Like usual, Woods' and Elucids' bars are cryptic and dark. These guys continue to take hip hop to come dark, eerie depths--especially with that lone guitar line laced into the beat on this one. Enjoy!

Armand Hammer - Race Music

Reviewsadmin4 Comments

Billy Woods and Elucid team up on Race Music to make one of the most dense hip hop albums to come out this year. With seventeen tracks laced with this duo's esoteric lyricism, this one's gonna require quite a few replays for maximum enjoyment and comprehension. A few shaky choruses on tracks like "Hand Over Fist" and "Renaissance Garments," but still a rap album worth reading into!

Armand Hammer - "Shark Fin Soup"

Armand Hammer is the collaborative project of NYC-based MCs Elucid and Billy Woods. Above, check out the hard-hitting "Shark Fin Soup," a Messiah Musik-produced boom-bap cut from the duo's new mixtape Half Measures, which can be streamed in full here.

But Elucid and Billy Woods weren't about ready to stop there--Armand Hammer's debut LP is already on the way! Race Music is due out October 22 via Backwoodz Studioz.
