Ok, before reading any further here are a few qualifying questions:

1. Do you love the bruiser Danny Brown?
2. Are you a loyal killah bee of the Wu Tang Clan’s following?
3. Have affection for jazz; in particular its involvement in hip-hop?

Well, if you answered yes to any of those then this is the track for you. With a lot of speculation and plenty of headlines over recent weeks of in-house disputes over at Wu Tang HQ, Ghostface Killah has just announced a 10” single with Toronto jazz icons BadBadNotGood in which the A-side will feature the toothless cussing of our man Danny Brown.

With a minimalist beat filled with mystique, never building to more than a simple drum stick tapping and a short, sharp, plucked guitar piece it’s the perfect contrast for the passive aggressive Ghostface and Brown’s ultra cool deranged rhymes. Put simply it’s experimental, right where the best stuff comes from.

The Six Degress single will be out 24th June via Lex Records.
