With Your Old Droog preparing to hit the road with PRhyme later this month, it’s appropriate that the emcee drops a new EP to whet the appetites of fans who are still reeling for his excellent debut LP. Kinison finds the Coney Island rhymeslinger kicking the linguistics over some vaguely rock fueled production courtesy of frequent collaborators which included DJ Skizz, El RTNC and Marco Polo.

Rolling Stone premiered the EP and caught up with Droog to discuss the project.

“It’s not like something we planned,” Droog tells Rolling Stone. “I was mentioning a lot of people from the rock world in my rhymes. It was like, ‘Yo, I think I gotta tie this thing around, ’cause it’s happening too much….Porno for Pyros…it’s like a dope way of saying your shit is fire. It’s kind of like useless trivia, so I’m making use of it. I just got memory for useless shit. I remember Meredith Brooks; I don’t know why.”

After a brief hiatus, Bam Bam returns with another installment of Fuck, That’s Delicious.

In this episode of Fuck, That’s Delicious we head to the land of juice bars and drive-by’s: California. While in the Golden State, we check in with The Alchemist during a recording session, catch a culinary performance at the Odd Future Carnival, and get some Hollywood power lunch tips from Simon Rex at Ink. As if all that isn’t enough, Action meets up with B-Real for tacos on the East Side, and then balances it all out with a spectacular cauliflower recipe. That’s some California love.
