Our TOTD yesterday was bumped from its regularly scheduled time because of two breaking news stories. So here it is now, via a long-time Atlantic reader: a summer-vibe track from Warm Brew’s latest album, “Ghetto Beach Boyz.” From a Vibe interview following the release:
The Venice, Cali-bred hip-hop group are more reminiscent of groups like The Pharcyde, and Jurassic 5 (but rawer) over Death Row. Brew isn’t moving tons of cocaine in their music, nor are they buying out the bar. Instead, they prefer to chill out with a 40 oz. of Billy D. Williams and Swishers. In fact, one of the ways the group came up with their namesake is c/o group member Serk Spliff, who used to have a habit of swiping 30-packs of beer.
But don’t be fooled. The Brew crew doesn’t just rely on their Mary Jane and alcohol habits to make music. They offer a wide range of styles and subject matter. Listening to Warm Brew’s latest album Ghetto Beach Boyz, which was released on Jan. 13, gives you that comfortable feeling of finally being home after a shitty day at work. Also, WB’s effortless flow and style comes as second nature.
