Leave it to West Coast native (and member of Dilated Peoples), DJ Babu, to bring the Northeast-based duo of M.O.P. back together for a brand new record. (In case you are unfamiliar with Babu’s work on the 1’s and 2’s, do some Google work on this highly-respected battle champion.) On the Filipino-American’s new single, Dearly Departed, brass-based, old-school production acts as a more-than-appropriate backdrop for emcees Billy Danze and Lil’ Fame, who have temporarily split to pursue solo projects, to spit their characteristic highly-energized rhymes over. Dearly Departed is set for inclusion on the October 28 release of Duck Season 3.
