The "Escape From New York" is set to go down.
New York's Beast Coast collective is all set to unleash their debut album Escape From New York tomorrow, having recently dropped off the reggae-inspired single "Snow In The Stadium." Now, on the heels of their mock news special "LSD25," a glimpse at the tracklist and verse breakdown have surfaced, as seen through Apple Music's pre-save feature. For those skeptical of its origin, Kirk Knight added credence to the tracklist by referencing many of the songs on "LSD25," including "Desperado" and the Late Registration-inspired "Last Choir." Check it out for yourself:
