Coming off the heels of their Single “Cali Ozone” featuring West Coast Legend Ras Kass, Independent hip-hop artists A-F-R-O & 60 East just released their EP titled “At The Sideshow” today. The project showcases not only the two MCs’ lyrical abilities, but also A-F-R-O’s lesser-known skills as a beat-maker. The five-song EP is a manifestation of a years-long friendship between the two, particularly their shared interests in film, television, and comedy. At The Sideshow is thematically inspired by one of the most iconic animated television shows in American popular culture, Beavis and Butt-Head. More specifically, it’s a reflection of the two friends spending much of their time together analyzing and criticizing movies, shows and music – similar to how Beavis and Butt-Head would do.
60 East and A-F-R-O are both self-described movie nerds, so fans can expect to hear a lot of obscure movie references and dialogue throughout At The Sideshow. “There’s definitely a cinematic feel,” says A-F-R-O. “The overall vibe is to sit back, roll one up, throw on a movie, and bump some hip-hop tunes. Which is pretty much all I do.”
