Alright enough of the experimental shit. Enough of the funny art kid shit, we get it. Have you heard of real hip hop? We do that here. We value bars on The Cave. This week, we’re joined by Detroit artist Boldy James and producer legend Alchemist. Unfortunately, Alchemist forgot his flux capacitor at home and his particle accelerator is still undergoing repairs in Geneva. We were hoping he could at least bring in his quantum computer from Zurich…but apparently if it is extracted from the dilution refrigerator and exposed to temperatures above 1 degree Kelvin, you can forget about initializing any kind of meaningful qubit sequence. This is all to say that he could not participate in the beat-making process per se, but he was able to identify the presence of Ron Artest’s spirit in the acoustic panels of the studio walls. Meanwhile Boldy, feeling philanthropic, offers up what we thought would be a four-bar giveaway to one lucky raffle winner. I even entered the sweepstakes myself in sweaty desperation, given the current bar drought wreaking havoc on the environment. Thankfully, when he does enter the booth, we get much more than we were promised, a surplus of bars in fact. And just like in Mad Max: Fury Road, when Immortan Joe releases the water onto the peasants of the desert wasteland below, the bars rain down on us. The Price Of Tea In China is available to stream everywhere.
