Brooklyn trio PENPALS made up of rappers Cynic the Apache and Rapswell, with producer Squires are back with a new single “Trip to Peru,” featuring dusty production by Lars Viola.
The underground stalwarts made waves with their 2015 self-titled debut, which was followed-up the following year with, Made for the Underground, produced entirely by Jazz Spastiks (a/ka/ The Slipmat Brothers). With “Trip to Peru,” the group sounds more focused than ever over Viola’s jazzy, piano-heavy instrumental.
In addition to delivering sharp and clever wordplay throughout the track’s verses, Cynic and Swell wisely bring their humor to the chorus as well. Their Wheel Of Fortune-referencing lyrics are as absurd as they are catchy, to the point you’re likely to have “We got it down pat/ Sajak” for the next week (or more).
