Founded by Jeffrey Cain, a member of the sadly unheralded band Remy Zero, the Birmingham, AL-based label Communicating Vessels have developed a reputation for releasing some of the South’s – and perhaps the entire country’s – more diverse and diverse music, as they’re the label home of Isidore; the collaboration between Cain and the Church’s Steve Kilbey; the  posthumous release of former Remy Zero member Gregory Scott Slay’s solo album; Shaeed and DJ Supreme; and the Green Seed, who will be releasing their much-anticipated full-length debut Drapetomania (prounced druh-pet-oh-may-nee-uh) on Tuesday. 

“Gotchoo” the second single off the new album is a densely layered track with room rattling bass, DJ scratching from DJ FX and Jeff C, and a cinematic-sounding sample over which R-Tist and C.O.M.P.L.E.T rhyme over. In this case, lamenting over the current state of hip-hop while telling hip-hop heads that they got what they need – dope beats, and emcees spitting fire.
