With their much-anticipated album dropping next month, the hard-hitting duo of Diabolic & Vanderslice delivers the lead single, “Think of That,” that’s brimming with raw lyrical middle-fingers and crunchy, sample-flipping production.
The single serves as a return for the NY emcee who immediately throws verbal punches at any unlucky individual. The track alone boasts an album’s worth of quotables from Diabolic, who takes shots at two of his adversaries (Talib Kweli and Immortal Technique) while letting everyone else know he’s on to their bullsh*t. As the man says himself, “I don’t believe a word these punks and b*tches said/ Because when their skin is shed, they’re just geeks from the interweb.”
“Think of That” is more than just an opportunity for ‘Bolic to talk his sh*t—though he clearly does so in spades—because Slice also shows out on the production side. The subtle, layered sample flips help to set the tone with snarling, unrelenting attitude. It makes for the perfect introduction to the duo’s upcoming album, Collusion, which will be here soon.
“Think of That” is available now through all major DSPs, and can be purchased for instant grat off the iTunes pre-order for Collusion, which is due out April 12 via Coalmine Records.
The album is available now for pre-order through HERE. Head over to the Bandcamp pre-order link for all official merchandise.
