With their S.O.S. Project out now in the world, Phat Kat and DJ Dister break out their soulful, but dusty breakbeats for a new generation. The first evidence of this pure dopeness comes in the form of “S.O.S. (So Ol’ School)” — a music video that takes it back to the True School of Hip-Hop.
For those unaware, Phat Kat, a legendary MC from Detroit, used to put in work with the late, great J Dilla and Slum Village. Meanwhile, DJ Dister was lacing cuts and filling out shows as a well-known DJ and producer from out of Berlin, Germany. The two linked up after recording a cut called “Rappin’ Ass Rappers” from DJ Dister’s 2015 effort, Consistent Knockouts, and the rest, as they say, was history.
“The vibe was so dope that we decided to do a whole project together,” DJ Dister said in a released statement.
With two solid resumes and a history that stretches back to a golden era of hip-hop culture, Phat Kat and DJ Dister present this video, which originally premiered over at 2DopeBoyz. From showcasing the elements (graffiti, breaking, emceeing, DJ-ing) and dropping fuego lines — Phat Kat and DJ Dister are worth the repeat plays and the support.
