After touring with Run the Jewels late last year, Dallas trio The Outfit, TX (Mel, Dorian, and JayHawk) are prepping the long-awaited follow-up album to their acclaimed 2013 double album Cognac/Four Corner Room. On their HYPETRAK-premiered single “Big Daddy,” which they’ve already started servicing to strip club DJ’s in Texas, TOTX’s Mel raps a salacious chorus while adding a bit of Southern twang to the end of his bars. And after a verse from Mel, TOTX’s JayHawk adds some of his own flavor to the song with an edgy tone. The production, led by a throbbing bassline and a distorted synthesizer, is handled by Guerilla323. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
“‘Big Daddy’ personifies a philosophy that we three share regarding romantic relationships and their accompanying titles,” TOTX’s Mel explains. “We’ve been ‘boyfriends,’ ‘best friends,’ ‘playbrothers,’ ‘side-n*ggas,’ and all that other shit. At the end of the day, it’s all rhetoric. Just kick it with a man, woman. Get to know me. Let me get to know you. Let’s watch Bill Maher, and debate classism vs racism or some shit. Next, lets do something ratchet to balance it out like hit a BYOB stripclub on a weekday, and kill a full bottle of Crown Apple. Then, at the end of the night, or in the parking lot of the stripclub, give me that good stuff, and call me ‘Big Daddy.'”
“Big Daddy” comes not long after The Outfit, TX’s recently released video for their Maxo Kream-featured single, “Ü,” which debuted via Noisey. The single also serves as the latest release from the trio’s decorated catalogue of several videos and two full length albums, which has attracted interviews withNPR, Complex, and SPIN as well as an award for Best Rap Group from Dallas Observer in 2014. Additionally, the group was deemed “The Best Rap Group You’re Not Talking About (Yet)” by MTV Hive. Their forthcoming album will serve as a follow-up to 2013’s Cognac/Four Corner Room, which was a double album – Cognac showcasing rap and production by Mel and Four Corner Room showcasing rap and production from Dorian.
