Thursday, September 21, 2017 — Following their first offering from the ‘World Gone Crazy’ EP set for release on All Good Records November 3rd, The Russ Liquid Test are back with ProbCause to deliver title track World Gone Crazy.
World Gone Crazy is an upbeat, speaker-knocking single featuring politically-charged verses by ProbCause. The single pays homage to the current state of political turmoil, taking a literal approach at addressing the issues at hand with lyrics like “gotta wonder about a system that can’t tell the difference between villains and politicians”.
The New Orleans-based trio are raising their flag with the new record proving their utmost versatility. Their ability to create different styles of music with radically opposite energies is worthy of praise.
ProbCause, AKA Colin Grimm, is a Chicago-based rapper who has worked with some of hip hop’s greatest including Action Bronson, Chance the Rapper, Lil Dicky and SABA. Grimm already has six albums under his belt, including his most recent Drifters which has earned the praise of UPROXX, HotNewHipHop, Consequence of Sound and more.
World Gone Crazy EP is set to release via electro-funk hero GRiZ’s All Good Records. Bridging the gap between live improvisational music and forward-thinking electronic beats, All Good has seen releases from The Floozies, Manic Focus, GRiZMATIK, Sunsquabi, and GRiZ himself.
In GRiZ’s own words, “Russ's growth as a musician has been incredible. He's sounding better than ever! Don't believe me. Press play :)”
