LA-based NJ-born artist, Malcolm Anthony, connects with Staten Island’s Squidnice for their newest collaborative release, “Gang Bang.” Produced by Nate Merchant, “Gang Bang” brings together Malcolm Anthony’s keen ear for melody with Squidnice’s signature lazy flow. The track is the latest offering from the duo’s upcoming collaborative mixtape, The First 48, which is set to drop at the top of 2018. Listen to “Gang Bang” here.
Speaking on the track’s inspiration, Malcolm Anthony shared, “this is what happens when you take shrooms and make an album in two days. Gang Bang was a freestyle that started with ‘this the type of shit…’ and the next thing we knew, we had a record.” Recorded in Colorado shortly after the two met for the first time, The First 48 captures the striking chemistry and fearless energy of two of rap’s most exciting newcomers. The duo previously connected for “Chelsea” which racked up over 150K streams.
Earning a reputation for his remarkable versatility and long list of collaborations, Malcolm Anthony has been turning heads in recent months. His relentless work ethic has made him a go-to for features, connecting with the likes of Lex Luger, Pham, Wave Chappelle and Sam F, to name a few. Laying down the groundwork with projects like the Terry Mak assisted Cuffin’ SZN, or the Lex Luger produced 1804, Malcolm Anthony’s music has earned placements from notable tastemakers including Pigeons & Planes, Fake Shore Drive, DJ Booth and many more. An incredible live performer, he has appeared on hundreds of live shows, even performing at this year’s largest hip-hop festival, Rolling Loud.
