Brownsville duo M.O.P. are readying an EP entitled Street Certified for release later this year, and today they've shared a dope new track from it. "187" was produced by Fizzy Womack and samples Tears For Fears' '80s hit "Head Over Heels" (you might recognize it if you've seen the film Donnie Darko).
Flipping the huge, retro piano line over and over, adding some boom-bap percussion and a little crowd noise, Womack does a great job making M.O.P. sound as big and powerful as they did back in the "Ante Up" days. Billy Danze and Lil' Fame spit aggressively as ever, showing no signs of aging.
Illuminati rap, we don't ride to that (nawww)
Everybody pop a molly, look at how they act (y'all sweatin')
The whole place emotional
Wake up and find out some dude Frank Ocean'd you
