Last month, ALLBLACK and Kenny Beats revealed plans for a new collaborative EP and introduced the project by debuting its lead single, “John Madden 2.” Now, following this month’s debut of EP cut “Blitz,” the two artists have unleashed their 2 Minute Drills EP a few hours early.
ALLBLACK and Kenny Beats’ 2 Minute Drills EP is made up of seven songs, and features one lone guest contribution from Shoreline Mafia rapper Rob Vicious. The project serves as the follow-up to this past spring’s solo effort from ALLBLACK, Outcalls.
“ALLBLACK is one of those timeless artists and one of those timeless people,” Kenny Beats previously told us. “There’s no one like him; there’s no one that sounds like him; there’s no one that looks like him. You can’t pull his card. There’s no one I have showed his music to him that doesn’t get it, whether they listen to this type of music or not, and I think this [ALLBLACK's music] is how Oakland really regains its title in the radio and the rap hierarchy.”
“We have no throwaways, there’s no extras,” Kenny Beats added. “I made pretty much every beat for BLACK and on the spot or while he was on the way there. Every single time we’ve hung out, we made like one song.”
