The second song from Danger Mouse and Black Thought’s forthcoming ‘Cheat Codes’ album has arrived.
The hip hop community is more than delighted about the collaboration. Now the super talented and stylish pair have brought in Joey Bada$$, Russ and Dylan Cartlidge to star on the cypher heavy ‘Because’.
"I’ve always been a big fan of Black Thought and Danger Mouse. I think Black Thought is one of the greatest rappers ever, so when they asked me to get on this record, it was a no-brainer,” Joey Bada$$ said, “plus the record is fire! I still remember the first time I heard “You Got Me” the video was shot on my great-grandmother’s block and I was actually there that day when I was a child. It changed the way I looked at music. I’m very honored to be a part of this track. We’re making history!"
Russ added, "Being able to collaborate with one of the greatest lyricists of all time is an honor and to do it in unison with Danger Mouse is something I’m just really proud to be a part of."
Cheat Codes, the collaborative debut from Danger Mouse and Black Thought, is out August 12 via BMG.
