Smokey Robotic - Bazooka

!llmind & Konrad
The Shark & The Helicopter

No one—well, almost no one—enters the game planning to sell out but, once fame and fortune are dangling tantalizingly close, one’s principles suddenly begin to seem a lot less binding. How to ensure one never reaches that point? On their latest mixtape single, alternative hip-hop crew Smokey Robotic offer a novel solution: get shot by a Bazooka loaded with deadly bananas. It may sound a little crazy at first, but…yeah, that actually is a pretty damn crazy idea. Not that the weirdness will stop Robotic fans from enjoying this R&B-infused selection, which finds crewmates !llmind and Konrad serving up a haunting string instrumental as vocalists Father Dude and Seer soulfully narrate a standoff between two brothers—one a wild-eyed outsider artist and the other a “Hollywood pop demon.” Of course, that’s only the Cliff’s Notes version; to actually know what the hell is going on, you’ll have to peep the official video. Those left intrigued can get the full picture this Thursday, when Smokey Robotic’s Booth-hosted The Shark & The Helicopter street album hits our mixtape page for free streaming and download.
