Hollywood’s party rap rockers RapScallions released their self-titled EP today - October 11th. To celebrate, RapScallions will be performing at On The Rox tonight. The first 100 guests will receive a free copy of RapScallions and there is an open bar for those of you legal to drink.
The second track, Freak In The Sheets contains elements of a signature 3OH!3 or LMFAO party anthem. On the other end of the sonic spectrum, the final cut, California Brain, has a guitar line comparable to Rage Against The Machine. Perhaps that is what landed it a spot in the new XBOX and PS3 game Rocksmith, due for release later in October 2011.
RapScallions was produced by Wendy Starland (Lady Gaga) and recorded at Interscope Studios in Santa Monica. To add even more credibility to their release, the band was able to get Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Shania Twain) and Paul Lapinski (Ludacris, Alicia Keys) to mix the EP.
The energetic SoCal group's shared the stage with artists like Fishbone, Wu Tang Clan, Mike Posner, performed at The Toronto Film Festival and the official NBA All-Star Block Party and even played at VH1's Save The Music. Clearly, someone is looking out for them or their is some industry darling child in the group - possibly both. I have no idea if the act is worthy of the hype - so I will be at ON THE ROX tonight to judge for myself.
With free booze, a rising local artist and DJ Luca Buassi spinning - it should be, at the very least, worth checking out.
