- Artist: Slaine
- Track: Hip Hop Dummy
- Feat. Apathy, Bishop Lamont
- Producer: Lu Balz
- Album: The King of Everything Else
No, Slaine isn't launching a rap-themed ventriloquist act—which is a good thing, since that might be the wackest idea of all time. The title of new single “Hip Hop Dummy” actually refers to anyone who denies the supremacy of hip-hop in general, and Slaine's own music in particular. Joining the Coka Nostra rhymesayer as he schools the lames over beatsmith Lu Balz's head-noddable synth/percussion grooves, West Coast mainstay Bishop Lamont and Demigodz co-founder Apathy contribute some razor-sharp guest bars. Slaine's The King of Everything Else LP is slated to drop August 19, via Suburban Noize. Click here to pre-order the set on iTunes.
