Philly production duo Trap Rabbit, producer Unown, and fellow Philly MC The Bul Bey have formed an alliance to bring us this lively punchy track titled “Hissy.” The track which was birthed a day after the failed capitol storming by armed groups dives into real-time issues ranging from racism, inequality, and more. The backdrop which has a punchy electro-soul vibe was crafted from a live beat making set by DJ Unown and Trap Rabbit and forms the foundation of the track itself.
