In March, while everyone else in Austin for SXSW got dehydrated and stood in parking lots, listening to the sound of a lot of bands playing in close proximity to one another, Meyhem Lauren
, Himanshu Suri, Action Bronson, Riff Raff, AG the Coroner and producers Tommy Mas and Harry Fraud holed up in a hotel room
and made an album, Lauren's Respect the Fly Shit
, to be released by LRG/Greedhead this month. Over crunchy snares and a chorus of dark angels, Bronson raps about twisting weed into takeout origami swans on "Special Effects," a lurching track from that project. Like Riff Raff
, Smoke DZA, Curren$y, French Montana and seemingly everyone else, Himanshu is working on more tracks with Fraud, who's productive pretty much wherever
. Expect their collaborative EP "soon."
