As the hype builds for Lil Ugly Mane‘s final release supposedly coming this June via Ormolycka, the mysterious Richmond rapper/producer continues to unload old material onto the Internet. Today, he randomly dropped Third Side Of Tape, a collection of over two hours of previously unreleased material similar to his Three Sided Tape series from the summer of 2013. Judging by its name and cryptic Bandcamp description, the project is the “final side” to the physical release coming this summer. As always, the project is disjointed and strange with some serious heat punctuated by interludes of abrasive sounds and obscure samples. It may take some dedication to get through, but if previous Ugly Mane releases are any indication, it will be worth it.
