Hey Gangstagrass, nice tunes! Good timing too, as I’m focusing on experimental bluegrass right now. You know, it’s rather surprising that there haven’t been more bluegrass/hip-hop fusions. If Peter Rowan can make Reggaebilly… And I’m also impressed that the musicianship is top-notch and the drums never get in the way of the other instruments, which usually happens when you stick a drum kit in a bluegrass band. Take a listen, y’all…
