“DEATH OF THE BOOMBOX” – Prolyphic & Buddy Peace feat. Sage Francis & Metermaids

“Death of the Boombox” is an upbeat, throwback posse-cut featuring verses from SAGE FRANCIS and METERMAIDS. This is the latest single from the “Working Man” album by PROLYPHIC & BUDDY PEACE, available now here: http://tinyurl.com/WorkingManLP

While a majority of the Working Man LP addresses the bleaker issues of working class society, Death of the Boombox provides a playful detour, acting as an old-school throw down over the kind of boombap production that intends on blowing out cheap subwoofers. This isn’t a rehashing of the played out “hip-hop is dead” argument, nor is it a eulogy for the revered portable stereos of the past. It is an energetic return to a lost moment in time when sharing music with friends didn’t involve an internet connection. Songs were simply blasted throughout the neighborhood from two speakers perched on top of a b-boy’s shoulder. “Dig…put your back into it.”

Special thanks to Pat Jensen for the boombox funeral artwork.
