Potluck Release“2 Minute Drill” Video Online
New Album “Pipe Dreams” In Stores February 10th 2009

Humboldt County California’s Potluck have made their video for the track “2 Minute Drill” online at . The track features Potluck’s own Underrated flexing his jaw dropping mic skills by spitting 40-bars of fast rapping in just over 2-minutes with no computer edits, punch-ins or second tracks. The track is taken from the group’s upcoming new album “Pipe Dreams”, which will be released through Suburban Noize on February 10th, 2009.

"I was the smallest and shyest kid in all my classes growing up. I also always loved hip-hop music but the industry is slow to give white guys respect. I wanted to do something super challenging to show the world what I can do,” says Potluck’s Underrated about the track and video. “I produced the beat, wrote the rap, performed the rap, and even helped mix and master the song.  The beat was fun and the easier part, but rapping the 40 bars with no punches or second tracks was a big challenge. It was like running a marathon."

“Pipe Dreams” is the highly anticipated new album from Humboldt’s hip-hop heroes Potluck. The group’s musical potpourri re-ignites an otherwise extinguished hip-hop game with lyrical depth, rapid fire flows and head nodding beats like the game was supposed to have all along. The group’s love for hip-hop as a genre shines through on some sticky musical chemistry with guest appearances from Strange Music’s Krizz Kaliko, Cool Nutz, Tristate (One Session), counter-culture icons Kottonmouth Kings and Twiztid. The album is currently available for pre-order at along with a limited edition poster.

Potluck is currently touring as a part of the “New World Orphans” tour alongside (Hed)pe, Dirtball, DGAF and Strange Music’s Kutt Calhoun throughout January.
