LEATHER BLVD. DUE MARCH 31ST VIA LEX RECORDS
Pink Siifu and producer Ahwlee, the enigmatic hip-hop/neo-soul duo B. Cool-Aid, officially announce their forthcoming album Leather Blvd., out March 31st via Lex Records. After having first unveiled details on the project with a teaser on socials last week, the announcement also arrives alongside a brand new single with “Cnt Go Back ( Tell Me )”, featuring V.C.R., Jimetta Rose, Liv.e, Butcher Brown, and Maurice II.
Leather Blvd. remains true to the duo’s signature style with mellow instrumentals and Siifu’s enigmatically smooth vocals that blend jazz, soul and hip-hop elements, while continually evolving musically. The new album manifests itself as a stroll down a loud, familiar street and the voices you hear, invoking both legendary and youthful guest appearances that are central to the larger B. Cool-Aid community.
The duo’s new album follows last year’s double single titled bonded, which consisted of “COO,” co-produced by Kiefer, and “usedtoo,” featuring Jay Feeniks in addition to a video for both songs co-directed by Jacob Nadir Gray and Siifu himself. The couple of tracks marked the first official releases from B. Cool-Aid in over 3 years following their last full-length project Syrup in 2019, which Bandcamp says “offers relief as much as it inspires deep thinking.” The duo have also maintained their long-running monthly NTS Radio residency with their show BRWN which explores “hip hop’s varied and far-reaching experimental corners.”
