Way back in 451 AD, a group of church fathers at the Council of Chalcedonia ended a longstanding debate over Christ's divinity by stating that he was both 100% man and 100% God, all at once. How is that possible? Well, it's a mystery – the point is, the rules of math can be bent or even broken where greatness is concerned. On this inaugural EP leak, One-2 boasts of a similarly mind-boggling lineage; not only is he “Half Man, half amazin,“ (to quote Nas' It Ain't Hard to Tell) but he's also half barbarian, half Viking, half vampire, half lycan, half Frankenstein... and all emcee. Joining the Los Angeles up-and-comer over Komplex' exotic sampled-string instrumental (complete with guest cuts by DJ Wizard), Long Beach representative Crooked I drops his own paradoxically fresh self-description on the middle, tossing in a few bruising one-liners for good measure (“You don't know who you f*ckin' with fam, like blindfolded incest.”) Fans can find this collaborative banger and much more on One-2's forthcoming, Komplex-produced double EP, History/Destiny. Keep it locked for release details!
