Last month, ALLBLACK and Kenny Beats teamed up to unleash a collaborative EP known as 2 Minute Drills. Continuing to support their joint drop, the pair have linked up with director Stacking Memories to cook up a video for their recent release’s sole collaboration, “Weigh Ins” featuring Shoreline Mafia‘s Rob Vicious.
“ALLBLACK is one of those timeless artists and one of those timeless people,” Kenny Beats previously told us, breaking down his thoughts on his 2 Minute Drills cohort. “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.”
“Kenny turned my savage up so bad. He got me walking with my chest out, he got me turnt up, man,” ALLBLACK adds, recalling the studio sessions that produced his most recent project. “I was maxed, but I wasn’t as turnt up as I am now. Kenny doctored the f*ck out of my flow, he doctored my whole shit. Every bar, every hook, every f*cking verse! I never recorded like that ever.”
