The homie Skratch Bastid got together with lyrical wizard Shad to release The Spring Up EP, which features five dope records to bump during the (hopefully) good weather we will have for the rest of the summer. Stream the project below and download via Bandcamp.
The Spring Up is the result of fortunate timing, grapefruit Perrier, a shared high school obsession with Outkast’s Aquemeni, and a couple of sessions at Skratch Bastid’s Toronto studio this April. The 5 track collection marks a moment in time for the pair; embodying the spirit of Spring and also serving as a sort of prelude to Shad’s upcoming full-length, to which Skratch Bastid also contributes. The collection features a production assist from DJ Jazzy Jeff, and a turn on the mic from compatriot Cadence Weapon.
