Exclusive Premier: Coolzey w/ Soce & Schaffer the Darklord - Sleight of Hand

Coolzey is back with a new song, and we have the exclusive first listen for you right here on RapReviews.

The song is titled "Slight of Hand," and on it he's joined by Soce the Elemental Wizard, Schaffer the Darklord, and Schaffer's sidekick, magician Nelson Lugo.

Soce says of the teaming of emcees, "Coolzey and Schaffer are such hot artists. It was a pleasure and an honor to spit with them about one of my favorite subjects magic! They bring out a whole new fierce, competitive side in me, and I loved having Coolzey slay a whole round of my beats on this EP."

The EP is Coolzey and Soce's upcoming collaborative effort, Coolsay, which from now until its release date of February 3rd can be pre-ordered on bandcamp for $7. Fans who pre-order will get not only the EP, but also a sixth bonus track, which will be unavailable after February 3rd, and a digital lyric book and zine.

Coolzey says of the EP, "Our collaboration, 'Graduation Day,' from Coolzey and the Search for the Hip Hop Hearts, is the most popular jam from that album. I get more requests to perform it at shows than any other song in my catalogue. I wanted to try to capture the same juxtaposition of slapstick comedy and serious tragedy in my lyrics that moved me in Soce's work, while still retaining my voice."

He adds, "I also am a strong supporter of Soce being an unapologetically openly gay rapper in the homophobic hip hop world. I support gay rights and feel that the gay community is still not anywhere near as accepted as they should be in the present day. I was even kicking around the idea of titling the album Support Gay Rights or Die, just to get it into people's faces, but I felt that it would have been misleading to the content, and we settled for the more inviting Coolsay."

Check out "Slight of Hand," and enjoy some hip-hop magic!
