By Alex HudsonBrooklyn production duo the Kickdrums are showcasing their signature blend of hip-hop and indie rock in the form of a new mixtape, Follow the Leaders, which you can pick up now as a free download.
Among the notable artists who contributed to the 13 tracks are Freddie Gibbs, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire and DZ Deathrays. The original version of the mixtape also had a cut called "Ridin'" featuring Lana Del Rey and A$AP Rocky. Unfortunately, the Kickdrums promptly removed that song from the collection and tweeted, "Had to pull the Lana - A$AP track due to label reasons. Song got too big too fast."
They added, "A$AP wants the track for his album. Its as much his and lana's music as it is ours so we have to respect that."
