BING BING BING BING. The day has finally come!!! It brings me insane joy to announce that on November 4th Sims will release More Than Ever, a brand new 13-track monster solo full-length on Doomtree Records. Check out the awesome album cover below courtesy of designer extraordinaire Andy Lund and get pumped!
Huge shouts to the good people over at Consequence of Sound who just world premiered “OneHundred,” the first single from the album, earlier this morning. Check out what they had to say about the track right HERE and then stream “OneHundred” on the Soundcloud player below for a first taste of what’s in store from this record. Sims on the fire raps and Beak on the heat knocker. This one is an undeniable and certifiable LAVA BANGER. Bump it as loud as possible and then help us spread it around the farthest reaches of the internetz.
