More info on Strange Famous & Situation:
Strange Famous Records is a new endeavor from renowned musician and savvy businessman, Sage Francis. To those in the know, Sage Francis and Buck 65 openly had the reputation as being foes for a time. Coming full circle, the two are now good friends and Sage Francis, as Buck 65’s biggest advocate, lobbied to release Situation in the United States on his label. After much perseverance, Warner Brothers worldwide gave Sage Francis permission.

Situation will serve as Buck 65’s first LP to be released in the United States since his blow up from This Right Here is Buck 65. In basing the record around the many defining events of 1957, Situation recognizes the true creation of underground and independent culture that happened 50 years ago, and the enticing idea that we are on the cusp of a similar renaissance. And while Buck 65’s music is truly defined by it’s own genre, Situation is a raw and powerful return to classic hip-hop delivered in Buck 65’s prolific and seasoned style.

“Buck 65 has touches of Tom Waits and Beck but an intelligence and humor that are all his own”. – NY TIMES

“His albums are vivid beatscapes full of dirt road narratives & grizzled rhymes, from up-tempo bangers to impressionistic slow ones” -ROLLING STONE
