New York-born, London-based rapper, Big Cousin is preparing to release his Blue Money EP on October 11th. The latest single is “Bleed Respect.” Produced by Nottz and featuring Dilated Peoples’ Evidence, the song already has a great underground pedigree before you even press play.
But once you do press play, the track is classic. Evidence kicks it off with a nod to Eminem‘s “My Name Is…” with the line ”Hi kids, do you like vinyl?” over Nottz’ flute-filled beat. Big Cousin comes through with a second verse filled with word play like “all those nights of pain, G, we had to endure/now I’m chillin with my dogs like Ace Ventura.”
