You may have caught SoCal hip-hop artist 2Mex when he came through town and played the Black Sheep last fall. (You can find our interview here, by the way.) So now it’s time to check in with LMNO, who recorded and performed alongside 2Mex for years in the recently defunct Visionaries.
The rapper/producer has teamed up with Kev Brown (of the D.C. collective Low Budget) for a national tour that comes through Colorado this weekend en route to Europe. They'll be performing a free show at Thunder & Buttons II in Old Colorado City on Saturday Night.
To get in the mood, here’s the duo's new single, "Ya Know," which is built around a sample of James Brown introducing his “bad self” from the beginning of “Say It Loud.” The track will be included on their forthcoming album Selective Hearing Part 2, which is slated for release this coming Tuesday.
