Now, before you call all your friends and get Issa's tweet tattooed to your left calf, it's important to keep in mind that rappers often oversell and under-deliver on promises that include the release of multiple projects in a given time period.

While you wait until the tentative first release next month, however, we do recommend we you dig back into the duo's 2014 debut, Cellar Door: Terminus ut Exordium.
