HipHopDX Premiere: German production duo JR & PH7 has teamed up with the New Jersey-based trio St. Joe Louis for “Driven,” which also features a guest feature from veteran Long Island MC Roc Marciano. The xylophone-laden song serves as the second advance single from the forthcoming album Coral Cadavers, which is expected to arrive this June.
According to one of the St. Joe MCs, Michael Cardigan, the concept album is a “neo-noir psychological thriller about a woman’s descent into moral ambiguities against the backdrop of Los Angeles.
“Like a good heist picture, Roc Marci is the wild-card/out of town gunner who shakes things up at the last minute,” he adds. “JR & PH7 worked with him on their previous album, ‘The Good Life.’ After placing a call to him, he liked the joint and jumped on it — done deal.”
