Richmond, VA's Butcher Brown blend hip hop and jazz perfectly. Their latest single, "#KingButch," is going to remind you of some 90's bands that blended jazz and hip hop like Guru and Digable Planets without sounding like a throwback. The single is a chilled out, laid back track that almost hides the edge inside of the song. "#KingButch" is pure hip hop, with a warm, inviting feel to the music. Lyricist Tennishu describes the song: “To me, #KingButch describes the feeling when I walk into Jellowstone (Studios). It has an edge but is very warm and loose. The lyrics came after we laid down the track. We were hanging out, sitting down at the instruments. I wrote the lyrics to capture the vibe of the hang.” You can listen to "#KingButch" below.
