Not the 1s (feat. Isaiah Toothtaker): Fly As Fuck


If we have learned anything in this age of Odd Future think pieces, it’s that rap takes itself too damn seriously. No, seriously. Lighten up.

Everyone could learn a lesson from Not the 1s’ Why You Cryin?, an eight-track offering of party-rap swagger (out digitally now on Gold Robot Records).

I mean, what is there to question or decipher when, on a track like Fly As Fuck (which we’re premiering here), you hear a line like this: “Rolling down the street / bumping Humpty Hump / out the fucking trunk / and it fucking thumps.” Coupled with bass-rattling production from Young L of the Pack and a guest verse from Tucson’s own Isaiah Toothtaker, Fly as Fuck flaunts a back-to-basics style that Not the 1s embrace throughout the album.

New Isaiah Toothtaker: Muerte Folks


Tucson emcee/tattoo artist Isaiah Toothtaker, who earlier this year released his full-length Illuminati Thug Mafia, is already unleashing new treats.

On Monday, Toothtaker dropped a free single called Muerte Folks, a haunting two-verse tale on the topic of suicide.

Production was handled by Depakote, a newcomer to the Machina Muerte crew who reinterprets Heartbeats by the Knife without losing any of its chilling edge. (Anyone know where the opening lines come from … sounds like a movie perhaps?)

A video for Muerte Folks, created by Marco Oliva and Thomas Haskins at Hobo Stew, was also released:
