This is FRESH. You can't have a Wordburglar video without at least a little bit of ridiculousness and you'll see what I mean when you watch this new joint from Backburner champ Wordburglar. Rhyme O'Clock is the first single from Burg's upcoming album 3rdburglar, which is the album that I'm most excited about this year (not to say that there aren't other awesome things coming out too). Coming through as the king of silly wordplay, Burg teams up with past collaborators More or Les, Fresh Kils (Juno nominee!), and Uncle Fester on vocals, production, and cuts, respectively.
The flow of the tune, chorus especially, is reminiscent of their previous collaboration on Burglaritis Spit Fresh, but it still stands out as its own track and only pumps up the Portland fans for this upcoming release. This video outlines what is sure to be an excellent album. B-boy braggadocio and nerd swagger combine to bring you Rhyme O'Clock. Enjoy it!
More about 3rdburglar:
Aside from tearing up 10 tracks on 2011′s Backburner: Heatwave album, its been 2 years since Wordburglar last dropped a full-length solo album (2009′s underground hit Burgie’s Bassement) and it’s with great pleasure that we’re preparing to unleash 3rdburglar, Wordburglar’s third full-length release of all-new material. Featuring 14 tracks of original lyrics, beats & cuts blended meticulously with ‘Burg’s patented style, every track is a stand-out. 3rdburglar also features production from Juno-nominated producer Fresh Kils & long-time collaborators Beatmason, Timbuktu and Uncle Fes, with guest appearances from Canadian rap cohorts More or Les, Chokeules, Garthim-Master and Timbuktu as well as Los Angeles underground rap legend Riddlore (Chillin Villain Empire/Project Blowed).
3rdburglar drops May 2012. The release party is happening in Toronto at El Mocambo on May 11, 2012 for only $10. Features additional performances from Ghettosocks, More Or Les, Timbuktu & Choke and Dream Jefferson.
It's definitely gonna be a good show but I won't make it because I live in the Pacific Northwest. Enjoy yourself, you lucky Canucks.
