Busdriver – roadkill overcoat

Posted on: August 17, 2007

“I´m an angry teen in baggy jeans!”

Busdriver is back, the smarter version of Busta Rhymes, rapping fast and lyrical with a serious sense of humor. Boom Bip and DJ Nobody are responsible for a lot of the pretty electronic productions, besides Busdriver himself.

“It´s me fucker, it´s me. I burn flags, not oil reservoirs.”

Though it’s basically hip-hop, Busdriver weaves in lots of other music, pleases every possible music bone in the body. “Sun Showers” is a Depeche Mode Discohit, “The Troglodyte Wins” hums over big-beat and “Kill Your Employer” a pure jungle drum´n´bass garnished with Busdriver´s raps and singing. Yes, Busdriver sings with his catchy voice much more on this record than ever before and it was a wise decision. The record is released by Epitaph Records, famous for its important punk releases like Bad Religion, NOFX, Dag Nasty and also indie heroes like Weakerthans or Emo-Megaseller The Get Up Kids for almost 30 years. In the last years Epitaph also released Hip Hop records from Sage Francis, Pete Philly & Perquisite, The Coup, Dangerdoom or Blackalicious.

But back to Busdriver, “Are you caught in a plastic film?
