“Don’t Think” – No Bird Sing feat. Sage Francis


I would personally like to welcome No Bird Sing to the Strange Famous family! They’re a special crew for sure. Their new album, Definition Sickness, drops worldwide on Nov 12, 2013 on SFR.

3 exclusive pre-sale package deals are available here:

Stand outs in the indie-rap haven of Minnesota, No Bird Sing combines the talents of emcee Joe Horton, drummer/producer Graham O’Brien, and guitarist/producer Robert Mulrennan. With “Definition Sickness”, the trio has maintained the integrity of their live-band roots while exploring a more produced sound that ranges from stark minimalism to lush expansiveness.

“”My gut is telling me [Don’t Think] is one of the best rap songs of 2013.” – URB

Breaking Bad + 2Bad = “Breaking 2Bad”


We’re all pretty big fans of Breaking Bad here at Strange Famous Records, so Buddy Peace put together this “2Bad” remix using bits from the show. I recorded the original version of 2Bad with B. Dolan under the “Epic Beard Men” moniker for his House of Bees, Volume 2 mixtape.

In other news, Buddy Peace & Prolyphic will be joining dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip on their UK tour this October. In potentially bad news (for people in the UK without tickets) all of the shows have already sold out. But here are the dates are here. Special pre-orders for the upcoming DanVsPip album, “Repent Replenish Repeat” can be made here:

Unlocking the Truth

It’s amazing for me to see these kids who are my dynamic opposite be motivated by the same thing I was when I started rapping. Interesting to note…hip-hop is the norm these days which, according to everything I learned as a kid, makes it the thing to rebel against. Of course, when I say “hip-hop” I’m basically talking about the general public’s understanding of it…according to whatever is force fed to them via mainstream channels. These kids are me in 6th grade in some strange but familiar parallel universe. It’s bugging me out.

Death of the Boombox

“Death of the Boombox” is a song that I did on the “WORKING MAN” album by Prolyphic & Buddy Peace. It also features our Brooklyn fam, the Metermaids. This song is not 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.”

“Pitchers of Silence” lyrics

I never held a funeral for that big part of me that died.
I need to put these thoughts to rest.
I need to find a peace of mind.
I need to piece my mind,
I need to find a piece of mind to rest in.
I need to find someone to confide in then let the rest in.
I need to start resting.
Needless to say, I couldn’t hide.
While thinking, Read the rest of this entry »
