Brooklyn Academy ft. Jean Grae - Raise Ya Hands
Emcees Pumpkinhead, Block McCloud and Mr. Metaphor, otherwise known as Brooklyn Academy, decided to get their scientific-technologic-metaphysic wordplay on for their new single, Raise Ya Hands. These non-conformists of the ironically-titled Bored of Education committee are not apologizing for making hip hop fans think, in their attempt to bring the genre back to its essence. Since DJBooth heads enjoyed listening to Jean Grae on the remix to Talib Kweli’s Hot Thing, listeners should be able to more than appreciate Grae’s talents on deck, which add propane to the fire that is BA’s wordy-genius. New Jersey producer Illmind provides a methamphetamine-punchy string orchestral production for the emcees to rapidly get ill over. The appropriately-titled Bored of Education is set to drop on September 2.
