Blue Sky Black Death, the Seattle-based beat duo behind Deniro Farrar‘s Danger and Mr. MFN eXquire‘s The Message 1 and 2, make their first foray into the solo spotlight with Valley of Kings, single numero uno off their forthcoming joint mixtape with Nigerian-British rap duo S.A.S. (not to be confused with West Coast collective Strong Arm Steady). Over B.S.B.D.‘s production, an atmospheric blend of synth-strings and percussion accented by occasional vocal samples, brothers Mayhem and Mega give listeners the lowdown on their luxurious, globetrotting lifestyle. Queens mainstay N.O.R.E. and Dipset vet Cam’ron assist on the guest tip. So, readers, is this joint fit for royalty? If you think so, keep it locked for release details on the currently-unscheduled Celestial, as well as all the latest singles.
