Produced by fast-rising Montreal musician/producer Grimes, '88' is a buzzy tribute to the early days of hip-hop. Acting kind of like a companion piece to Ghostface Killah's 'In Tha Park,' '88' salutes early pioneers like KRS-One and Lovebug Starski as well as supporters like Debbie Harry all while firing off now-classic phrases like "Shock, shock your body 1-2 to the beat, y'all/Freak, freak, y'all."
The best part, though, is that Cadence is threatening to make dropping songs this way a regular thing.
"So today marks my new habit of dropping a song/mix/video every week or so. maybe even more frequently. less bagel talk, more songs in 2012," the rapper, who's set to release his new album in the coming months, tweeted.
