“Work My Mind” is the first single from the new EP featuring Chali 2na and Hymnal. The song samples “Alternative Fresh” by Vox Populi! featured on Cut Chemist Presents FUNK OFF: Vox Populi! and Pacific231.
“It’s a slightly new territory for me as it suggests the Golden Hip House Era of the late 80’s.” Cut adds, “A dance track for sure and Chali kills it being exposed to the Chicago House scene back in the day. He seen where I was headed, and nailed it!”
The EP will feature more collaborations with Edan, Mr. Lif, DNTL, Mumbles (Aceyalone’s “Book of Human Language” producer) and Gone Beyond.
"Work My Mind" Featuring Chali 2na & Hymnal, directed by Delaney Bishop. Bishop directed Jurassic 5's "Concrete Schoolyard" video in 1998. The concept was derived from a short video he directed for Cut Chemist's "Rare Equations" mixtape snippet ith Chali 2na also released in '98.
Enjoy this Day of the Dead festive work as they add Hymnal ("What's the Altitutde") to the concept while the adventure takes him through a graveyard.
