New Video + Tour Dates : Doomtree : Bangarang

While recent anums have yielded strong releases from Dessa and Lazerbeak, as well as pert near-classics from P.O.S., something very special happens when the members of Minneapolis hip-hop collective Doomtree go Voltron. No Kings, their latest full-length, is a stone-cold stunner and proof positive that the evolution of hip-hop, though seemingly stunted at times, is far from over. And incidentally; if it’s wrong to want Bolt Cutter for my ringtone, I don’t want to be right.

Though hardened by countless Minnesota blizzards and coldsnaps, the ‘Trees have elected to spend this winter bringing their curb-tricked stylings to the beat-starved masses around this great country. Their ambitious No Kings Tour kicked last night, and to mark the blessed occasion, we have the video for their new single, the commute-ready earwig, Bangarang. Everyone loves karaoke after a few, right? And the star turn from everyone’s fave local exhibitionist, Har Mar Superstar? Well, that’s just the icing on the proverbial cake.
