The 2 Hungry Bros are spending every waking moment that is not dedicated to being Well Domesticated Kitchen Whizzing Men & Concerned Parents as well as outstanding employees, digging through the files, stacks, wax, and even movies to bring you a banging beat installment every #MusicMonday. Now while the #MusicMonday hashtag may have dissipated, we like to think maybe we can snag that fervor back by unleashing raw a$$ beats in a pretty unorthodox manner like we've been doing the past few years with our super fresh unorthodox artists. Except for the next few weeks only, the 2HB anonymity is gone and Deep is behind the MpC4000 this week. Enjoy- "THE WEIRDING WAY"
