You should probably already know this, but for the past year or so I’ve been working with Miami hip-hop act The Vagabonds. The rap duo of E.R. and Baysiqly put out several successful projects in 2010, including their debut mixtape V For Vendetta and singles “Space Music,” “Success,” and “Work It Out.” Their buzz has grown exponentially over the past few months and the group has been featured on such notable music blogs as Kevin Nottingham, DJ Booth, Antisteez, Ashy Knuckles, and 305 Hip-Hop, just to name a few.
Yesterday, The Vagabonds dropped their highly anticipated new release, Good Neighbors, an album full of collaborations with some of Miami’s hip-hop luminaries. From their press release:
The 15-track album features appearances by Ryan K, Dynas, Alex Walker, Len Xiang, Kobie Powell (of US3/Cantaloop fame), Protoman, Dashius Clay, Saheed, Garcia, LMS, The MC Faceman, Jay Fingers and GhostWridah. The majority of Good Neighbors was produced by E.R., with assists from Miami Beat Wave and High Guyz Productions.
The album’s concept was inspired by the Baysiqly solo track “Good Neighbors” found on V For Vendetta.
Here’s a behind the scenes clip, courtesy of Antisteez.com:
Can I just say how excited I am about Good Neighbors? I honestly believe this is The Vagabonds’ best work to date, and I’m extremely proud of my brothers. Take a moment to check it out—I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s dope.
