Here’s the video to the title track and lead single off what is shaping up to be one of the monkey’s favourite LPs of 2013 – Aceyalone‘s Leanin’ on Slick. Expect to find the Freestyle Fellowship rapper, slightly greyer in the beard but still tight on the mic, propping up a barrio bar, chain smoking and downing endless shots of rum whilst holding forth about what people will sell their soul for – (something superbad, apparently) over a JB’s style groove. It takes our man just over two and a half minutes to bring the (already half cut) regulars around from ‘who’s this joker’ to a glasses raised ‘You know what? Ifugginloveyou’ while simultaneously flirting with the attractive barmaid. Yep. Still got it.
(Album out 28 May digital and 10 June CD/ LP on Decon)
