Queens-based hip-hop collective World's Fair are finally set to drop their long awaited debut album later this year. New Lows follows excellent 2013 mixtape, Bastards Of The Party, and features the talents of Remy Banks, Nasty Nigel, Cody B Ware, Prince SAMO, Jeff Donna, and Lansky Jones.
This first single taken from the album is the gritty "Elvis' Flowers (on my grave)." A nod to the late New York City club Elvis Guesthouse, "Elvis' Flowers (on my grave)" has a mid-tempo change, capturing the dirty and grimy feel of the club that inspired it.
Produced by Black Noi$e and NoLife the track melds rap and jungle beats with a touch of New York, with Remy Banks once again showcasing his lyrical superiority. The film clip for the track was shot by Nasty Nigel and centres on a wild night out in New York. Nigel had this to say about the visuals:
The deeper DJ Thoth and I got into DJing at Elvis Guesthouse, the more we experimented with BPMs and tempos finding a middle ground to please both ourselves and the crowd. Lansky Jones, NOLIFE and myself flew over to Detroit to link up with Black Noi$e and work on this album. Naturally ‘Elvis’ Flowers’ came from blending jungle and rap the same way we were experimenting behind the decks. The music video documents that year running around New York City and the watering hole that was Elvis Guesthouse.
Look for World's Fair's New Lows to be dropping later this year.
