Critical Praise for League Of Extraordinary Gz:

“The eight members of the group were a high-energy bunch, rapping with distinctive Texas twang and pogo dancing nonstop.” – The New York Times

“A goddamn typhoon onstage.” – Houston Press

Eight immensely capable lyricists, all of whom bring a unique perspective, voice, and level of vigor to the stage” – Austin Chronicle cover story

“…what promises to be a defining group in Texas rap history: The League of Extraordinary Gz.”- DJ Booth

The Song:

Today, League of Extraordinary Gz member Slick Talk‘s releases the title song for his upcoming deathbeDreams EP produced entirely by Eric Dingus (currently known for a remix of “Worst Behavior” which Drake posted to his blog). The track, featuring fellow leaguer Reggie Coby on the hook, preserves the overall theme of the upcoming EP tackling the subject of death and violence. “This was the last song recorded for the album,” Slick explained. “We felt the album needed a strong intro to really set the mood for the rest of the experience, which is very cohesive and has a few clear themes running throughout.”

When describing his vision for the song, Slick added: “The frustration, regret, and desparation that I would probably feel if I died today. That’s basically what the whole album is about. It comes from that place in my brain that has seriously contemplated how I would feel and what I would be thinking if I was bleeding out on the ground, at such a young age, like so many people I knew and grew up with who died in their teens and twenties. ”

Slick Talk and Eric Dingus’ deathbeDreams EP drops February 18th.

League Of Extraordinary Gz Background:

When Austin, Texas, reality rap collective League of Extraordinary Gz recorded “We Gone Make It” in spring 2010, Octavis “Esbe Da 6th Street Bully” Berry stepped in the booth and yelled two words: “League Shit!”. Three years later, it has become an emphatic anthem, brand and title. The Bully’s vision formed in 2009 when his choice of 8 members and 3 groups with their own budding local buzz – Dred Skott, Da COD and Southbound – sat in a driveway plotting a collaborative mixtape. In 2010 they debuted locally, played the SXSW Music Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest and were featured on MTV Jams’ Texas All-Star Edition. In 2011 they rocked over 60 shows, including a West Coast tour with Jackie Chain for their Concealed Weapons 3 mixtape, and a national tour with Dead Prez. Then, in October 2011, The Bully passed away suddenly due to a pulmonary embolism. As 2011 ended, the LOEGz were named one of Sonicbids’ Top 5 Hip Hop acts, and they released The Plug EP. All of this came from a collective effort by 3 groups in 3 years via the foresight of a now-absent leader. All anticipation, questions or doubt after a few spins of The Plug EP will be quenched with their debut album #LeagueShit. Clearly rooted in traditional hip hop, #LeagueShit includes stout musicality and wildly free speech featuring Dead Prez, Bavu Blakes, Grupo Fantasma, and Slim Gravy of A.Dd+.
