One of our favorite hip-hop projects of 2015 has been Oakland rapper Jay Stone’s & LA producer Monster Rally’s Foreign Pedestrians EP. Stone’s complex and zany rhymes pair smoothly with Monster Rally’s psych-tropical beats, that at their core, are still forged in hip-hop.
They just premiered the first video off the project for “Recollection”, over at Impose and It sees Stone on a funky frenetic stop-motion journey through Oakland. As Monster Rally guide’s Stone’s journey, he ventures from twistin’ one up on his porch, to drinking beers at Jack London Square, all the while sporting throwback threads that look right outta the closet of his Fifth Handed vintage clothing line.
