One day, Kid Hum hit me on some "I have this dope project, and want to get some movement behind it; how can I do that?" My answer? "It's instrumental, why not get a bunch of dope MCs to spit on it?" He liked the idea, and after about six months of connecting dots (back then, I was way more engrained into the hip-hop Internets than I am now), Offshore Drilling was born. That's the biggest thing I'd ever done on RTD to that point, and with a little love, peace, and elbow grease, the project even charted on CMJ.
It also helped birth the sort-of sequel compilation from The KhemLab two years later.
But enough of that. It's awesome to know that Kid Hum is still crafting dope beats; Fossil Fuel 2 is due out on Amazon on August 5, but you can stream the full compilation down below. Loving the sample-based structure (which is lost these days), and that Wesley Willis is all over this. Here's what Hum had to say:
I want to say this is one of the first tracks that Elucid let me hear from his Armand Hammer project with billy woods. Still one of my favorites from the project, and I'm glad that they hooked up a video for it. Best way to spend July 4th? Cop Race Music.
