Dudley Perkins has always interested me with his unorthodox style of funky hip-hop infleunced soul. Next week the poetical wordsmith, also known as Declaime, is releasing his first solo album in over four years and with the singles this is shaping up lovely. We've got the Georgia Anne Muldrow produced "Stokley's Cafe", the reunion with the one and only Madlib on "State Of Emergency" and early associate KanKick's Foot Surgery". While all of these three cuts have been solo ventures, the new single is one of the tracks I looked forward to the most reading about the upcoming album; the collaboration with veteran BX super rhymer Percee P. The song is called "Hearing Test" and features both Percee and Dudley going HARD over a suitable rugged hip-hop beat, complete with cuts, again laced by G.A. Muldrow. DON'T SLEEP on this one, as it's both up for free streaming and download! The Mello Music Group LP "Dudley Storkins" lands in stores on both wax, CD and digital on November 29.
