Hometown: Toronto, Ontario

Sour Soul (eOne Music Canada, out February 24) is the collaborative album from Toronto jazz/hip-hop band, BADBADNOTGOOD, and Staten Island rap champ, Ghostface Killah (eOne Music Canada). Inspired by 1960s and 70s music, taking inspiration from the recording techniques and production of that era, and eschewing sampling in favour of live instrumentation – BBNG, with producer, Frank Dukes, have created a dramatic, cinematic musical staging for Ghostface’s vivid storytelling. Sour Soul also features guest spots from MF DOOM, Elzhi (Slum Village / J Dilla), Danny Brown and prodigal new rapper Tree (Project Mayhem).
