The hotly-anticipated Higher Brothers crossover album boasts a whole lot of Americana, from A-to-Z. As reported, the improbable tracklist boasts names such as Ski Mask The Slump God, Denzel Curry, Guapdad4000, JID, and Soulja Boy on its final draft. Nominally-speaking, even the promised Rich Brian collaboration on Five Stars feels like a stretch of the imagination, even with consideration to the common ground they share within the 88rising collective.
Out of all the entrusted help on the crossover LP, I neglected to mention ScHoolboy Q, because as it stands, the TDE rapper has become something of an enigma to rap fans the World over. Yey, as of late ScHoolboy has been more vocally pronounced on social media, dating back to his prominent feature: a unifying chorus and hook on 21 Savage's "good day."
But Q is ready for the winds of change, as are his Chinese contemporaries the Higher Brothers, whose ambitious Five Stars LP is part of 88rising's plan to lower a cultural drawbridge across the Pacific. It's been said "Chinese is the language of the future," to the point of exhaustion - but Higher Brothers are the closest thing since "Yao Ming" to reaching "cultural export" status in America, and hopefully the World over. Check out their latest single "Won’t Believe" featuring a re-energized ScHoolboy Q.
