Formed in 2011, The Four Owls — comprised of U.K. rappers Leaf Dog, Fliptrix, Verb T and BVA — have continually pumped out thought-provoking, emotive and undiluted lyricism. The group’s new single “100%” is no exception.
Produced by the inimitable DJ Premier, the track serves as a slice of The Four Owls’ forthcoming album, Nocturnal Instinct, and acts as the follow-up to their first collaboration with Preemo, “Think Twice.” This time, Preemo laces the track with his trademark scratches, proclaiming The Owls as “kings of their throne.”
