Harry Fraud & Tommy Mas Present: Meyhem Lauren - "Respect The Fly Shit" (Embassy Suites)
Respect The Fly Shit was written/recorded in one fall swoop @ Embassy Suites during SXSW (March 2012) in just 24 hours. Harry Fraud and Tommy Mas mounted a mic on top of an ice bucket and somehow managed to morph a hotel room into a make-shift recording studio... Meyhem Lauren quickly invited everyone who was anywhere nearby Austin, TX to roll through Room #426 over a 2-day period and record a verse: Action Bronson, Heems, Sean Price, RiFF RAFF, Roc Marciano, AG Da Coroner, and a few more rapping friends. Beat-wise, Fraud and Mas somehow managed to conjure up 12 Jazzy, Boom-Bap-filled originals, ready to be fully laced up and punchline accented.
Re-mastered @ SXSW's end, Respect The Fly Shit is a collection of 12 care-free tracks that were loosely laid down over a long weekend [vacation]. Meyhem Lauren then managed to forge a solid enough relationship with clothing company LRG and Heems' record label, Greedhead that they both agreed to sponsor/fund his FRESH mixtape. Respect The Fly Shit premiered online earlier today and is now available for monetary commitment-free download @ LRG online. Hold up... make sure to check out Heems' directorial debut behind the lens for "Special Effects" (Action Bronson 1 of 5) up above, too.
