Listen as they parse every gruesome lyric and pick apart a beat that’s, by all accounts, quite hot. Other artists referenced include the Lonely Island, 3OH!3, Cage, Jimmy Pop, Aesop Rock, Michael Christmas and OG Swaggerdick.

Ep.04: Lengthy Lyrics + A Crappy Chorus

For their fourth track, the boys of KC decide to go looong with three verses each… and a chorus about getting the devil’s daughter hooked on PCP? It’s a recipe for rap disaster that you’ve got to hear to believe. Also discussed: The magic of Big Boi and the best bass plug-in for FLStudio (no, it’s not Boo Bass).
