Album releases from Action Bronson (Mr. Wonderful) and Earl Sweatshirt (I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside) were one day apart, and the two rappers have unveiled a collaborative bonus track to celebrate the occasion. Hip-hop veteran Alchemist produces the beat for “Warlord Leather” packing some raw jungle style percussion, a perfect foundation for the rappers to effortlessly throw down flawless verses with some smooth background vocals by Lou Diamond Phillips. Instead of using a chorus, Earl and Action trade off stellar verses after Bronson simply says “put me in coach” and takes over to close out this great track.

The talents of highly acclaimed hip hop and electronic producer Hudson Mohawke have been proven time and again through production for artists like Kanye West, being apart of the epic duo TNGHT, and releasing his acclaimed Chimes EP late last year. Well Hudmo has announced the exciting news of a second studio album, entitled Lantern; the 12 track release has a drop date set for June 14th via Warp Records, and will contain features from Jhené Aiko, Miguel, and many others.
Today we are treated to the album's debut single "Very First Breath" featuring the vocals from Irfane. The song carries out a wider range of appeal than we've seen from Hudmo's typical offbeat styling. We get something that's catchy, refreshing, and dare I say ready for the radio which could lead to this becoming the largest Hudmo track to date. Enjoy!
