Beast Coast—a New York-based hip hop collective comprising Joey Bada$$, Flatbush Zombies, the Underachievers, Kirk Knight, Nyck Caution, CJ Fly and Powers Pleasant—have released their debut track, “Left Hand.”
Produced by Sam Wish and Tyler Dopps (who previously worked on Flatbush Zombies’ “New World Order”), “Left Hand” boasts a sinister melody that kicks off with Meechy Darko’s fiery bars. “Really never leave the house without my weapon / If you hating, plot from a distance, die,” the Zombies MC spits.
Elsewhere, the rest of the crew take turns behind the mic, each launching into their own blazing verses: Nyck Caution proves his loyalty to the group, Kirk Knight brags about his designer wear, while Joey Bada$$ dubs himself a legend.
Beast Coast are currently working on an “upcoming project,” as Pitchfork notes, and will be performing at several festivals this summer, including Rolling Loud in Miami.
