MP3: A.Dd+ - "Jumper Cables" Feat. Tunk

From Audible Treats:

MP3: A.Dd+ - "Jumper Cables" Feat. Tunk

Rising Dallas Duo Returns With Slew Of New Music, Videos

The Song:

Back in March, A.Dd+ officially hit the scene with the release of When Pigs Fly, a project that quickly became the upstart Dallas duo's much touted debut album. WPF earned critical praise from the Dallas Observer as "possibly the best hip-hop album Dallas has ever released." A few short months later, Paris Pershun and Slim Gravy, joined by producer and unofficial third member Picnic Tyme, return to unleash a slew of new music and videos to be released in the coming weeks and months. Kicking things off is the new track "Jumper Cables," which features fellow Dallas rapper Tunk.

Although not from When Pigs Fly, "Jumper Cables" picks up right where the duo's debut left off, with Picnic Tyme's slick snare rolling into a bevy of winding strings, claves, bass, and pounding drums. The hook, "Wait till I get my money right, then I'm on/ I'mma get that Caddy running right, bitch, I'm gone/ Living good, it ain't nothing better," builds the theme for the song, one that, despite the upbeat nature of the track, details the group's struggles and aspirations. Fitting, considering that Paris and Slim wrote the hook in the midst of their own grind towards recognition. "We came up with the hook on our way back from a show in San Antonio," explains Paris. "We didn't have anywhere to stay after the show, so we got back in the car, hopped on the road at 3:00am and started heading back to Dallas. We had the instrumental on repeat and put together the hook."

According to Dres of Black Sheep/Native Tongues, "Willie Evans Jr. and his crew are the closest thing to Native Tongues since Native Tongues." Introducin' is produced entirely by Willie Evans Jr. and features both his emcee and MPC skills. The album tells the story of a kid (Willie) who can't learn music the traditional route, and then decides to use the MPC to express himself. The artwork for the album was hand crafted by UK’s visual artist/producer Ben Grymm.

Previously, Willie Evans Jr. has done extensive production work with Mr. Lif and Akrobatik of the Perceptionists and is a member of the Alias Brothers (formerly Asamov) with notable member Paten Locke aka DJ Therapy. He has been previously featured in URB, VIBE and has performed at Rock the Bells, Paid Dues and more.
