As we await Teflon‘s new album which will be out soon, he thrills us with the visuals for his single “Contraband“. The DJ Premier-produced track was initially released late last year as part of Teflon’s slew of singles that will help usher in the new album. The track has that classic Preem sound with cinematic strings, stabs laced over punchy boom-bap drums and excellent scratches.
The video’s set in an abandoned building where Tef connects with his crew which includes his M.O.P. brethren, Billy Danze and Lil Fame. It all feels like a homecoming for the Brownsville native whose new album, 2 Sides To Every Story, is finally arriving at the end of the month.
“Contraband” is taken from Teflon’s forthcoming album 2 Sides To Every Story, which drops digitally on June 30 via 420 Music in partnership with Coalmine Records.
You can also visit Coalmine’s online store to pre-order 2STES on vinyl and CD. A blue and purple whirlpool edition is available now for pre-order exclusively through Get On Down, along with a silver edition via RRC Music. Both are limited to just 150 units each. A double-sided slipmat bundle is also available in both the classic black and Get On Down edition, which features Teflon’s 420 Music logo emblazoned on one side, with an image of a “non-stick” teflon pan branded with Coalmine’s logo on the other. *CD orders are set to ship by late July, with all vinyl orders set to ship by late August/early Sept.
