It's too bad not many people will give this a second look. Because this is great funk. It's reminiscent of old school rap, and it's exactly what I think I might want to listen to this April 20th. And a great way to get this into your show would be to play one of the instrumental tracks while you talk over it (8, 11, and 14). These guys are certainly much better than I thought they would be (been in the alt bin since '07), and even they've probably long since disbanded, give these gentlemen the airtime they deserve. Funk-tastic.
