Shady/Interscope
From the 'Southpaw' OST, and the first new Phryme we've heard since 2014. I was as hyped for this as I was when I was a kid and you heard rumbles that Gang Starr or Jeru were going to drop something new. You'll be glad to hear not a lot's changed since that superb self-titled debut — gnarly Primo beats, Adrian Younge lacing the whole with swathes of gorgeously detailed grainy strings and jazz, Logic and Royce swapping killer lines, and some scratches from Primo that are just so exquisitely timed and frabjous that three minutes is way too short to fully enjoy it. Until a new album drops, keep hitting rewind on this little beauty. Superb.
