Shaolin Jazz returns with “The Shimmey Roll” – the latest single to surface ahead of their forthcoming Byrd Over Staten LP. Inspired by an anthemic classic from the late Wu-Tang killer bee Old Dirty Bastard, the track puts Donald Byrd‘s “Jelly Roll” back out onto the road in a new pair of kicks. Bop and golden era hip-hop combine seamlessly for the win. Check the track below to listen to “The Shimmey Roll.” Stay tuned for more from Shaolin Jazz.
