The talented duo — Eboshi and Contra of Cartel Madras signed a deal with Sub Pop and just dropped a video for "Lil Pump Type Beat" the latest single from their upcoming EP Age Of The Goonda.
In their press release the duo describe Age of the Goonda as a “manifesto for the times” and “an in-your-face call to arms for those who must resist being treated as underdogs, including immigrants, women of color, the LGBTQ+ community and Desis (a.k.a. Westernized Indians).”
Eboshi adds, “There’s a certain thing that Hip Hop does, that gangsta rap does: a narrative of being larger than life, kind of violent but in power. We are paying tribute to that, but also focusing that on women who are queer and brown, telling stories that haven’t been told."
“We are speaking to, and about, narratives that are not magnified in popular culture, while paying tribute to the sub-genres that have continuously influenced our sound. That’s what we want goonda rap to become.”
Age Of The Goonda EP is set to release November 1 via Sub Pop and Royal Mountain Records. Check out the music video for "Lil Pump Type Beat" below!
