If you've been following us on Twitter or on Facebook, you already know about some of these. But we like sharing good news—sue us. Dujeous and "Pro Choice," our collabo with John Legend from Day In Day Out, got some awesome shine on Okayplayer recently. It's one of the reasons that the Soundcloud page for the album has over 20,000 plays! Check the review below:
Okayplayer is proud to host this collaboration between John Legend and Dujeous (that OTHER legendary live hip-hop band!) mixing it up and sorting out a “war of choice” of a very different kind (listen to the lyrics). As you might expect “Pro Choice” is an ill combination, with Legend’s falsetto setting off the evil groove of funk/rock foundation and alternating verses that keep you listening to the end, like a much grimier verison of “Two Princes.” I’m not sure why I picked that photo except that something about this groove just kinda sounds like, Yippy-kay-yay, motherf*ckers. Dujeous’ LP Day In Day Out is out now.
Having the Roots' site call us "that other legendary live band" is awesome to say the least. Also awesome is the pic of John and his wifey OKP used. Click here to check out the post.
We were also blown away the Twitter commentary on Day In Day Out from legendary journalist, activist and WBAI radio host Harry Allen, who any hip-hop head worth his salt will recognize as Public Enemy's one-time "media assassin."
Blown away and flattered. (And Apex played the piano, by the way).
