BadBadNotGood Shoot Stars Ghostface Killah and DOOM with Ray Gun

Source: Rock On Philly

Ghostface Killah and DOOM collaborated with the Canadian jazz and hip hop trio BadBadNotGood, or BBNG for short, on the new single “Ray Gun.” The track is reminiscent of 70’s funk wrapped in a cinematic casserole of Bruce Lee, blaxploitation, and throwback Sci-fi Channel futuristic B-movies.

We included our top ones below. Let us know what else should be added to this list in ...

Since 2009, famous acts like Talib Kweli and Ghostface Killah have made stops at the venue located in West Philly just outside of Drexel‘s campus.
