Following on the heels of Brotha Lynch Hung’s acclaimed Coathanga Strangla, Strange Music imprint continues its already successful with a new project from Big Scoob. The long-time friend and collaborator of Tech N9ne is preparing the release of his sophomore LP Damn Fool this May 3.
Clocking in a 26 tracks, Scoob’s LP features the likes of Glasses Malone, Bumpy Knuckles, Messy Marv, Irv Da Phenom and fellow Strange Music signees Jay Rock, Krizz Kaliko, Skatterman and Tech N9ne. Scoob says that the album captures his wild personality and street smarts.
“Growing up in the ‘hood in Kansas City, a damn fool, that was me!” said Scoob. “I’d stick to my whiskey bottle, go as hard as I wanted to. But now I’m seeing the effects of that over the long term, so I’m in a position to tell cautionary tales. Don’t worry, I got jokes!”
He also gave some insight into the meaning of the title, saying that it was inspired by touring with artists like Fat Joe and E-40.
“When I let my personality out on tour, cats like Fat Joe and E-40 were howling and said ‘You a damn fool!,'” he explained. “Tech N9ne was watching and told me, ‘That’s what I want you to give people on this new album.'”
HipHopDX recently premiered the video to the first single off Damn Fool, titled “All I Know is Hood.”
