Black Lips feat GZA - WTF

While recording their excellent album 200 Million Thousand Black Lips drummer Joe Bradley hinted that the band were hoping to get a member of the Wu-Tang Clan on board to do a guest vocal or remix of one of their tracks, and now they have.

The GZA features on the new Black Lips single Drop I Hold.

I know you are thinking what is a self-described flower punk band doing teaming up with the GZA? This can’t be good!

Bass player Jared Swiley understands your concern, saying
“It (Rap/Rock) has led to some of the worst music of all-time. It can be done tastefully, but there is a very fine line to be tread.”
Do Black Lips and the GZA succeed in treading this line? You can decide for yourself with this week’s Friday Freebie.
