Premiere: Kojaque & Kean Kavanagh are crooning again with ‘Whitney’

“Imagine if you could put together a dream line-up of MCs and producers from all four corners of the rap world?”


That’s the question illustrator Gangster Doodles asked himself before setting out on a journey to create ‘Gang$ter Music Vol 1’. Across 27 tracks, the collaboration between All City Records and Gangster Doodles will feature artists like Kaytranada, Madlib, Father, Jonwayne, Onra, Mndsgn and Ireland’s Softest Boys, Kojaque, Kean Kavanagh and Matt Finnegan.

The compilation is the second link up between All City and Doodles, after working together on Knxwledge’s ‘Wraptaypes‘ record in 2015.

Here’s what Marlon ‘Gangster Doodles’ Sassy had to say about ‘Gang$ter Music Vol 1’.

“Every time a new track came in it was like running down the stairs on Christmas morning to open a present. What started as a slow trickle of work coming in soon turned into a tsunami with some of my heroes like Onra, House Shoes, Blu, Jeremiah Jae joining up with young guns Kojaque, Kean Kavanagh, Dream Panther and others to beef up the record.

“When an email pinged through with a track from brothers Oh No and Madlib it felt like the final gift and ‘Gang$ter Music Vol. 1’ was complete.”

The project is out March 8 as a double LP, CD or tape. Click here to pick it up and click here to read our quickfire interview with Gangster Doodles from last year.
