OverDoz, the flower-minded collective behind California dream vids like "Don't Wanna Be Your Girlfriend," have popped up again with Childish Gambino, King Chip, and thousands of girls. Produced by Patrick Paige, bassist for The Internet, it's the kind of sunny funk that OverDoz is more than capable of pulling off, though the hook concedes the subject matter's less pretty: I ain't bragging, Kent Jamz sings of his body count, it ain't attractive. "I had been pretending to be Ron Isley all week, and the hook just flowed," Kent explains to FADER. "Once Chip and Gambino heard it, they had to get on it." It's been chill to see Gambino tastefully Drake-ing, hopping on cuts with upstarts from Kari Faux to Fredo Santana. But this feature was probably most worth his time: At the festival, the top of the lineup/ Still need a line-up, clothes ain't designer. OverDoz just wrapped their debut album, 2008, due on Sony/RCA.
