Totally Tubular!!

Break out them old parachute pants, your favorite hypercolor shirt, and a heapin’ helpin’ of Soul Glo, it’s time to take a trip back to the decade of decadence. I read about this shit a while back, but really didn’t believe it…man was I wrong! We all know Phonte can hold his own in any cipher: as part of Little Brother he has shown lyrical prowess aplenty. But the dude can sing too!! Who knew?
I always tell folks I hate all ‘80s music, but this shit made me laugh all the way through…and I can’t lie, I was giggin’ a little too. This dynamic duo actually stays fairly true to these one-hit radio wonders. But don’t worry, they add some much-needed soul along the way. Did I mention Phonte can actually sing? Trip.
You can preview Love the 80's over at HHB, but why not just buy that shit too? It comes autographed by Zo and Phonte, and includes a bonus disc of solo material from Zo. If nothing else, it’ll be a good conversation piece while you sniff blow and talk about trickle-down economics at your next ‘80s party…or not. Whatever, just buy that shit and support a pretty creative project. The cover alone is worth the$15 (mine's in the mail).
In a word: awesome!
