A few weeks back, STS & RJD2 hit us with the full dose of their of collaborative LP, laced with swooning horns, subterranean organs and whole lot of rhyme-play. But the two Philly transplants have so much more to offer, guys. Today they’ve unleashed a soul-soaked non-album cut in the earnest and rather comical “Good Guys Anthem”; a thoughtful, playful tribute to man’s greatest weakness. STS comes with a very Andre 3000 meets Danny Brown type of Southern slur, while the prolific beat constructor provides the syrupy soul stuff, reminiscent of Eddie Kendricks’ “Intimate Friends” and the gamut of Stax slow-burners. And while you’re all, no doubt, familiar with the robotic rhythm king, if you need to get acquainted with STS beyond his Roots collaborations on How I Got Over, we implore you to jump back and get familiar with his verbal gymnastics. The duo’s collaborative piece is out now via RJ’s Electrical Connections imprint and can be copped on iTunes today. Let RJD2 & STS hit you with your next alibi on their soulful loose joint “Good Guys Anthem” below and stay tuned for the next episode.
