Hip-Hop Tag Team Griff & Scorcese Drop Track, ‘DetLef’, Featuring Eddie Kaine

Hip-hop duo, D.C’s emcee SCORCESE and Chicago based producer GRIFF, unveiled their brand new joint titled ‘Detlef’, which features a grimy guest verse from Brooklyn’s Eddie Kaine.

Speaking on the track, Scorcese says: “Griff’s beat here reminded me of a Brooklyn cypher and being a fan of Eddie’s Nezzie Star project, I knew he would be perfect partner on this one.”

‘Detlef’ gives a taste of the forthcoming Griff/Scorcese album, ‘Midnight Express’ which further exemplifies their equal inspiration from boom-bap and professional wrestling.

Speaking on the significance of the album title, Scorcese explains: “The Midnight Express was this infamous heel (bad-guys), wrestling tag-team group in the 70’s and 80’s. It’s most famous incarnation was with wrestler Stan Lane, manager Jim Cornette and every territory they would wrestle in they would bring out a new partner to tag-in. I said to Griff, what if we brought out a new emcee to tag-in on every track? That’s how this album came about.”

Scorcese and Griff were previously featured on the blog with 2019 album, ‘The Dream Team: A Stokely Hathaway Joint’, which claimed the blog’s Song of the Week title three times.

The ‘Midnight Express’ album will be out later this month, 24th September. Have a listen to their hot joint below…
