The Kottonmouth Kings have been ripping the indie rap/rock scene since the late 1990s, and are still going strong today. Most of the group’s members have their own projects — including Oregon-bred spitter, The Dirtball.
After Kings bretheren D-Loc debuted an exclusive freestyle music video, covering Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now,” The Dirtball comes with his version of Rick Ross’ 2006 breakout hit, “Hustlin’,” but with a dubstep flair to it. The rapper shot a little video for the remix using his iPhones 4S, filmed in a black light-lit room.
“I wanted to rip a verse on this Rick Ross ‘Hustlin’ for a while, because the track is banging,” the rapper tells BallerStatus.com. “The dubstep version gave me the opportunity to spit venom and create a dope remix. This is a dope track, dope concept, and fresh remix, so I used it as a verbal treadmill.
“I’ve got more remixes and fresh tracks on the way, so stay tuned! Anyone that hasn’t checked out my solo album, Nervous System, make sure you cop that sh**.”
The track does not appear on any project … as of yet. However, for more Dirtball, cop his latest solo project, 2011’s Nervous System, over at iTunes.
