Singer and producer Alex Fitts and DJ Matt Penttila make up Brooklyn’s hip hop rock hybrid band The Kickdrums. Fitts and Tilla rode a wave of good publicity and anticipation this week with a Lana Del Rey and ASAP Rocky joint that was appearing on their new mixtape out today Follow the Leaders. Problem was, the song snippet might have been too good, as ASAP wants the track for his next album, mixtape, whatever. Good business decision, albeit a dick move from ASAP management.
Even though this collection is without that apeshit combo of ASAP and LDR, there’s still an all-star cast featured here, with MGK, Freddie Gibbs, Casey Veggies, Gilbere Forte, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, and more. Stream and download the mixtape now.
