Fool’s Gold Records co-founder Nick Catchdubs has never actually put out a full-length solo album, but that will change on April 28 when he releases Smoke Machine. First single “Full House” features two regulars of NYC’s rap scene, Troy Ave and ex-Das Racist member Heems. Troy sounds even more like 50 Cent than he usually does (not in a bad way), and Heems pulls one of his characteristically wacked-out verses. IAMSU!, Jay Ant, and B.I.C. (Bitches Is Crazy) appear on the album too. Listen to “Full House” below.
Heems’ former Das Racist groupmate Kool A.D. also recently announced a Santos show. His is April 30 with Lakutis opening. Tickets are on sale now. His only other date as of now is a few days later in Philly at Kung Fu Necktie (5/3) (tickets).
