Los Angeles clothing imprint Real Bad Man has been steadily releasing their On High Alert EP series throughout the year, tapping some of the most revered hip-hop veterans of recent memory and pairing them with rising rappers for truly unique and cohesive offerings. After dropping On High Alert, Volume 1 back in February and On High Alert, Volume 2 back in May, the third installment is finally available to stream today.

On High Alert, Volume 3 spans six songs and just under 20 minutes, enlisting past collaborators like Boldy James (whose fantastic Manger on McNichols just hit streaming services today after being a Bandcamp exclusive for the past handful of months) and Pink Siifu (whose upcoming collaborative album with Fly Anakin, Fly Siifu’s drops November 13.) Meyhem Lauren, Kool Kieth, Kool G Rap and Flee Lord also contribute.

The project is short but undeniably sweet with instrumentals that flawlessly meld old school boom-bap sensibilities with hypnotic and semi-psychedelic touches. When paired with the other two installments, Real Bad Man creates an insular sonic world that taps into hip-hop history and experimentation. All three are well worth the hour total of listening time.

Stream Real Bad Man’s On High Alert, Volume 3 below. In related music updates, revisit HYPEBEAST Music’s feature “What Boldy James’ Success Can Tell Us About Hip-Hop Listeners in 2020.”
