FG co-founder Nick Catchdubs takes center stage with new single “Wuts That,” a trapped-out blast of knucklehead funk, laced with tongue-twister verses from Bronx gremlins B.I.C. (Bitches Is Crazy) following in the grand tradition of rap troublemakers from Tha Alkaholiks to A$AP Mob. Stream it now at The Fader and grab it on iTunes next Tuesday (9/16) backed with an uptempo remix from Australian breakbeat whiz Kraymer.
“Wuts That” sets the stage for Nick’s debut album Smoke Machine (out on FG in January ’15), an anything-goes collection of gleeful club collabs and oddball beats featuring guest spots from IAMSU, Heems, Troy Ave, MNDR, Roach Gigz and more.
Nick and B.I.C. will be performing live at Webster Hall on Friday, 9/19 for the “Wuts That” release party, and you can also see Catchdubs with Fool’s Gold family and friends at our massive Fools’ Gold DAY OFF events in Los Angeles (10/12), Atlanta (11/11) and Miami (12/7).
