The current state of commercial hip-hop has never been fully examined in the way that Coolzey showcases in the clever single “Tough Guy”.

Today, Ghettoblaster is proud to premiere the Midwestern abstract emcee’s song, coming off from the forthcoming Coolsay Too.

Released this Friday (April 21st) via Public School Records, the EP falls along the line between lounge-rap, nerdcore, and slap-stick comedy.  Soce The Elemental Wizard has once again joined Coolzey (real name is Zachary Eli Lint) to produce Coolsay Too, with guests that include DJ Douggpound (who also writes for the television shows Tim & Eric and Portlandia).

Following a childhood obsession with another comedy/musician ‘Weird’ Al Yankovic, Coolzey’s devotion to hip-hop, rap, along with other genres has pushed him to push the boundaries of songwriting.  Not only has Coolzey shared the stage with Brand Nubian and Jurassic 5, but he also has performed with punk rockers Dead Milkmen.   Besides what hip-hop is today, other topics in Coolsay Too include the impending zombie apocalypse, job interviews, and the crippling addiction to literature.

A musical amalgam of each member’s playlists, Jumbotron (husband/wife duo Ben Lebovitz and Regina Shvartsman) serve up tracks that possess elements of dance punk, art-rock, electro-rap and some WTF?!? Midi moments. Lebovitz writes most of the music as well as sings and plays guitar/bass. Shvartsman who is an accomplished musician, plays keyboards and sometimes adds Yoko style vocals in the backgrounds.

As for the group’s forthcoming self-titled EP via Public School Records, Jumbotron will be featuring label-boss/emcee Coolzey on several tracks. The musical chemistry between Coolzey and Lebovitz has been building for many years as Lebovitz was a partner in Ace Fu Records (Man Man, Pinback) who signed Coolzey’s first group, Sucka MC’s.
