FADER PREMIERE

For FADER's 90th issue, Naomi Zeichner profiled the ascending, tight-knit Bay Area rap crew HBK Gang. Today, insider Kool John shared details of his debut album, Shmop City, which he named after the lawless listening parties he used to throw at his mom's house in Richmond. First leak "Bang Bang Bang!" is as riled-up as the name suggests; it features Chippass of the NHT Boyz, a beat courtesy of The Invasion's Jay Ant, and an iconic, well-placed Boyz In The Hood soundbite. Shmop City drops April 7th. For more, download the FADER Mix that DJ Amen stitched together for us earlier this week.
