Malik B. (of The Roots fame) and producer Mr. Green may have caught you off guard with their last collabo, the eery, violence filled video “Devil,” ish was still dope though. This time around the duo come through with a more straight hip-hop boom-bap feel with single #2, “Definition.” Listen to Malik B. and Mr. Green define what that real sounds like, below. Both of these tracks will appear on their upcoming collabo LP, Unpredictable. Get some words from Malik on meeting Mr. Green, below, as well.
I met Mr. Green outside the (Roots) picnic in 2012 while he was doing his Live from the Streets thing… he had a microphone, a speaker, a beat machine and everything all in his lap… like a portable setup…. it was crazy because it kind of reminded me of the way we used to set up on South St. before we got a deal. I was like damn, I need to work with someone like that… That’s what made me gravitate to him and his sound. It’s straight to the point.. it’s on point. Our chemistry is just crazy man… Our chemistry is like algebra.
