MP3: Georgia & Declaime – “SomeOthaShip Connect Game” Feat. Kazi Picking Up A Beat By Black Milk, Georgia & Declaime Release Title Track From SomeOthaShip
The f0nk duo, Georgia & Declaime, has busied themselves with the delivery of another single off their album, SomeOthaShip. Featuring Kazi and produced by Black Milk, the song “SomeOthaShip Connect Game” delivers on beats that Declaime AKA Dudley Perkins just couldn’t resist. “SomeOthaShip was unexpected – originally, Dudley, Kazi, and Grap Luva were going to do a track over a Kev Brown beat, but when D sat down and heard Black’s beat, they recorded right away,” says Michael Tolle, founder of Mello Music Group. Declaime rides a piano-laden f0nkdified beat to drive home the message about the sometimes-inauthentic hip-hop industry. An eerie melody accompanies Declaime’s description of a life consumed by partying, alcohol and drugs – a life the public has come to expect from those in the industry. The emcee chooses to remind listeners that regardless of facades and fronts, real hip-hop is still alive. Reintroducing a verse from the song “Get Up”, Declaime affirms his position in the game as a respected artist and emcee by declaring, “Return the war vet / Bet your bottom dollar that/You ain’t seen nothing yet.”
SomeOthaShip is available at all digital and physical retailers now.
“SomeOthaShip Connect Game” Feat. Kazi
In a world made of plastic, Georgia Anne Muldrow & Declaime (AKA Dudley Perkins) breathe. Georgia radiates light into the west coast hip-hip scene with her vocal mixture of social revolution and raw street wisdom. Her choruses echo the voices of yesterday while her beats explore the cosmic sounds of tomorrow. Having already worked with the likes of Erykah Badu, Mos Def, and Madlib, Georgia finds herself taking a well-deserved turn in the spotlight and ready to keep up her collaborative efforts in 2010. Declaime is a veteran to the hip-hop game, with a voice that overflows with bluesy, syncopated veracity. Characterized by his impossible range and stirring cadence, Declaime has the ability to captivate with the unmistakable sound of experience, breathing a spiritual wind back into the funked out vibrations of hip-hop. Combined, Georgia & Declaime have created an impressive catalog of work including Georgia’s Worthnothings, Umsindo, and Kings Ballad, plus Declaime’s Conversations With Dudley, A Lil Light, Expressions, and Holy Smokes. SomeOthaShip is available now digitally via Mello Music Group.
