Just listened to Angles the other day and remembered how good it is. This looks really promising. Sage and P.O.S. on one track? What?!?!

The last DanVsPip didn't hit me right but I love Angles. This right here sounds real promising. I'm excited. And that video is hot.

Vinyl?

There won't be any vinyl. But we will be hitting people with an incredible remix just before the album drops that will hopefully make up for the lack of vinyl. It's that good. haha

Treats are on the way.

The great thing about Pip is that you'd think his ultra-thick porno-esque accent would be grating, but it's actually really endearing. I'm excited to hear the rest of the production on this new album.

Wow, I'm pretty pumped for this after checking out that video. Looks like this album's shaping up to be something pretty special.

I'm not sure if the general public is aware of this or not, but Pip has a serious stuttering problem. When it comes time to rap or recite something rehearsed, the speech impediment isn't really noticeable. Outside of songs, he's got a great obstacle to overcome when it comes to communicating. It's interesting (to me at least) how something like affects or inspires his writing process.

Did not know that. I heard him say something to that effect in the song but didn't think it was a serious sort of thing. So it's like a King's Speech type scenario? I'd say that makes Pip even more impressive because he sounds confident as hell on a track.

Loving this song. A lot of energy and a bit of a different tone to the le sac vs pip stuff.

RE: stutter, I think it's in his book (which is really cool btw) that Pip says how there are certain words he struggles with so he sometimes has to write around stuff in his lyrics. That was really interesting to hear.

Ah yes, I remember that now. That's a process I'd really like to hear more about. Maybe I can work out some kind of video chat interview with him.

This video is great! That was pretty ballsy for him to trim the beard and shave his head for the video. What would have happened if he messed up and didn't get it in that one take? Wait till his hair grows back?

Pip, Sage, B. Dolan & P.O.S.!?!?!

Shhhiitttt... I'll be picking this one up for sure
