Six Degrees

It’s hard to imagine two more appealing characters in rap than Ghostface Killah and Danny Brown, two gifted storytellers with peerless knack for detail and unmistakably wild cartoonish rasps. They would make a fine #TrueDetectiveSeason2 pair if True Detective hadn’t just announced that next season will feature three detectives. Maybe the Toronto jazz outfit BADBADNOTGOOD, which provides the music for Ghostface and Brown’s “Six Degrees,” can stand in as character #3. The band creates just the right sneaky spy movie soundtrack thump for these legendary rappers to rap legendarily in. Listen to these heroes play on 2 Chainz’s name and threaten to eat their rivals like butternut squash below.

“Six Degrees” will be released as a 10-inch single 6/24 via Lex. Pre-order it here.

  1. I dont know why there aint more rappers working with BBNG, thought i didnt expect ghostface and brown at the same time, now its too much to handle

  2. BADBADNOTGOOD have released two free jazz albums of hip hop covers (and a medley of Zelda themes) that are utterly fantastic. And their original album III is pretty awesome too. Highly recommend
