The Brooklyn-based act Gangstagrass deftly mixes old fashioned bluegrass with hip hop – and it works. in some way, it’ll be reminiscent of Everlast’s incredible Whitey Ford Sings the Blues, Bubba Sparxxx and others. Although, the band is best known for composing the theme song for the Emmy Award-winning FX show, Justified, they will be touring through a significant portion of the Eastern Seaboard and Appalachian Mountains to support their latest effort, Rappalachia – in fact, they have a March 30th set at Mercury Lounge

The album has Gangstagrass teaming up with a number of talented and legendary emcees including Kool Keith who spits some inspired rhymes on “Western” that makes being a redneck kinda gangsta, and maybe he’s right.
