GRAND KILLA CON- 52 Rooms (Digital Release)
52 Rooms: The EP is the follow-up to the debut full-length, Year of the Tre Bag, by the Bay Area hip hop duo Grand Killa Con (Brycon & Luke Sick). It will be released digitally through iTunes on August 25, 2015 by Megakut Records in conjunction with Art of Rec out of Amsterdam (who will be putting out the vinyl version later this fall). It is the first of two GKC releases slated to drop this year; the second one will be the full-length La Barranca LP (on Megakut/Dusty Crops) slated to drop this winter. The majority of the EP was produced by Brycon besides two songs co-produced by DJ Yelir of COF and the remix of "Born 2 Gain" produced by Fatees of Gurp City. It features a guest performance by turntablist virtuoso DJ Quest on the track "Sick Insane Cassette Tape," the first single which dropped August 20th. Two more singles, "Who'll Be First?" (featuring Awol One and Eddie K.) and "I Call Earl," will be released in promotion of the iTunes offering leading up to the vinyl release. Two of the songs ("Born 2 Gain" and "Drug Rug") leaked last year and were enthusiastically posted by egotripland.com. Thus far the 52 Rooms EP has been received positively for its dusted and diverse beats and disheartening lyrics.
