- Artista: MellowHype,
The Odd Future factory (also known for reinventing hip hop, on its last legs and with rhymes that have seemed worn out of late) delivers a new album. Or almost. Because, in fact, “BlackenedWhite”, the second effort by MellowHype, was released on 31st October last year, coinciding with Halloween, a 100% Odd Future-friendly event. The novelty lies in its remastering by Fat Possum, a label based in Mississippi, that’s grown up on blues and looked at different artists over the past few years, such as The Black Keys, Andrew Bird and the ultra-dark duo we’re talking about here. With “BlackenedWhite”, Left Brain, beatmaker and producer of the album, and Hodgy Beats, the lyricist, situate themselves at the top of the new wave of west coast hip-hop.
