HipHopDX Premiere: New York City wordsmith Billy Woods has recruited a superstar trifecta of talent — Aesop Rock, Homeboy Sandman and producer Blockhead — for “Wonderful,” the new single from Woods’ upcoming solo album Known Unknowns. Like the seasoned vets they are, the three rhyme slingers swap verses detailing improbable tales over Blockhead’s impeccable production.
Blockhead and Aesop, of course, teamed up for the former Def Jux MC’s 2007 album, None Shall Pass, but their relationship goes back to their college days. Homeboy Sandman and Aesop have dropped two projects together, Lice and Lice 2, and it looks like Woods simply has good taste in collaborators. As the owner of Backwoodz Studioz and member of Hip Hop duo Armand Hammer, his ear is clearly fine-tuned.
Listen to the track above.
