Song of the Day: Danger Mouse & Black Thought – Because (feat. Joey Badass, Russ & Dylan Cartlidge)


Danger Mouse & Black Thought have dropped new single, Because featuring Joey Bada$$, Russ, and Dylan Cartlidge. Because is the second and latest single release from Danger Mouse and Black Thought’s greatly anticipated joint album, Cheat Codes

Because finds the dream team duo teaming up with top tier American rappers Joey Bada$$ and Russ, plus the UK’s own Dylan Cartlidge.  The result is a sumptuous and summery, laid-back hip-hop jam packed with incisive, rewind-worthy lyrics.  The single follows Danger Mouse & Black Thought’s debut single, No Gold Teeth.   

Cheat Codes is Danger Mouse’s first hip-hop album since his DANGERDOOM collaboration with the late, great MF DOOM, and follows Black Thought’s pioneering output with The Roots and critically acclaimed solo trilogy, Streams Of Thought.  The record also features A$AP Rocky, Run The Jewels, MF DOOM, Michael Kiwanuka, Raekwon, Conway the Machine and others, and is due out 12th August on BMG. Enjoy the tune!
