Scorsese and Chicago based producer, Griff deliver a new single “Detlef” featuring Brooklyn’s Eddie Kaine. Speaking on the track Scorsese said “Griff’s beat here reminded me of a Brooklyn cypher and being a fan of Nezzie Star project, I knew he would be perfect partner on this one.”
Detlef is off the forthcoming Griff/Scorsese album, “Midnight Express,” which is mostly inspired by the duos love for boom-bap and professional wrestling.
“The Midnight Express was this infamous heel (bad-guys), wrestling tag-team group in the 70’s and 80’s,” Scorsese says about the significance of the album’s title. “It’s most famous incarnation was with wrestler Stan Lane, manager Jim Cornette and every territory they would wrestle in they would bring out a new partner to tag-in. I said to Griff, what if we brought out a new emcee to tag-in on every track? That’s how this album came about.”
Due September 24th, The Midnight Express also features Sleep Sinatra, Zilla Rocca, Curly Castro, Aasir, Alaska (Hangar 18), DJ Chong Wizard, Alex Ludovico and Flashius Clayton.
