    We've teamed up with General Hydroponics once again for a new, limited edition New Kong aka Kong Squad hat. The front includes 3D embroidery with incredible detail to the stitch count and the infamous Gen Hydro logo on the right side and font on back. The hats are custom snapback.

    After long anticipation, Vokab Kompany is prepared to unveil its first record since 2016, Small Viktories, on Gravitas Recordings. This masterfully crafted nine-track album is an audio journal of an expansive variety of themes that range from altruistic feels, party anthems, political commentary, and romantic intimacy. Despite the multiplicity within these subjects at first glance, each track is connected with cutting hip-hop vocals and funky electronic soundscapes. Featuring several collaborations with sensational artists, Vokab Kompany ensures this long awaited creation was well worth the wait.

    Produced by bass music pioneer JPOD, “Like That” packs a powerful punch out of the gate that is full of soulful hip-hop to make you want to sing. Produced by Megan Hamilton, “Fabtastik” hastens the pace with her signature catchy grooves and funky sax riffs. Equipped with a thumpin’ groove by producer AHEE, listeners are soon warned it’s going to take a whole life to “Get It Right.” A love story has its genesis in “Classic” through a decelerated alto, as deep affections are proclaimed towards the beloved. Gangster rap legend Mitchy Slick joins in on “30 Stores Up,” produced by chillhop mastermind Cloudchord, as they look into a past life through melodious house tunes. In collaboration with Crush Effect, “MVP” continues the love story with high-energy as listeners are welcomed into the inner thoughts of the captivated admirer. Infiltrating a state of euphoric bliss, Lily Fangz and MIDIcinal invite the duo to “Coffee & Chill.” Mitchy Slick and Alfred Howard engage in deep commentary on contemporary politics in “PoliTricks” that simultaneously represents hope for change and inspires people to take care of their neighbor. Rounding the album out at nine, Vokab Kompany offers an instrumental version of "30 Stories Up" to provide an emotional conclusion to the eclectic collection.

Mitchy Slick Verse: I aint' supposed to be mad at why the barely mention me After all i recently learned about Uncle Sam's history The biggest bamboozle was thinking that slavery was through Voted 13th amendment so it's never been truth told Mass incarceration works better than slaves to me Cheap labor built the country, still does presently Now that i understand the mission from the jump And make all the sense and didn't shot me when they gave us Trump Money over everything and just some slang where they bang Prop 57 caught up cuz my people still hang Down south and Angola got the homeboys walking round in chains At least half of the homies that I grew up with Have been victimized by the state and for the rest of their lives are sick Gang injunction just another law put upon us to strip The hope of building community and unity Politricks set up just to help them get away with shooting me.

Rob Hurt aka B3K Verse: It is often a short walk from cops to crooks A felon cause I got books Magellan 'cause I've been selling my people, tell 'em explore these knooks We've been here before but look, Outnumbered 'em all on foot I am the clown prince My energy gone, tell me you cook 'Cause we gon' need food to live Or we gon' bring heat to die I know in my mind, Then look to the sky And tell 'em we all survived Disrupt your worst laid plans And I plan to be better than worse The worst of it all, is hoping they fall when I should just hope to nourish Cursing my kin Burning our work force From bursting within I'm thirsting with him Worship the sun first Copernicus Men Divide and concur Awaken the monster Better bring amour You may be stronger Poison my water But we can still sabotage your helicopters Sending my message via camouflaged through teleprompters We've got sons and daughters Standing on the rocks for water Kill, Kill, Kill She's ill, ill, ill, Pull and pillage all her resources Drill, drill, drill, no feels Nah not me seller Rob you Rockafellers Better bring an umbrella Cause we raining on all shelters Helter-skelter you're the takers and the melters Of our precious empire Note sources, brother we overzealous Yeah Media circus We have a purpose And it's for the people They don't deserve this Nobodies worthless Better believe we're equal But they believe in lethal We here to bring upheaval And World War 3 will never see another sequel Alfred Howard Verse: Hypnotized you watched the great deceiver With every single trick up his long sleeve What you wanted to be true Was good enough for you A lie that you were willing to believe It seems that you have fallen for a con man With hollow promises of easy fix They pumped you full of fear And said the end was near And conveniently they had the cure for it They took advantage of a changing climate Denied til the very bitter end Where the virtues of the truth and patience weren't for you Where brevity is all you comprehend This is not the land my mother made Years my father gave Balanced on the edge of this blade This is not my home, it never has been My will has grown thin A flower left alongside the grave It feels as if the whole world is hungover Moving through a miserable malaise Feels like everyone Is crippled by their stun Stuck between their fresh fear and their shame Some say the sun will rise again tomorrow But no it doesn't seem to shine the same It will not burn out If your whispers turn to shouts If you fan the orange embers of a flame So I clutch the rush of fever flashing Refresh the stress they feed me in my feed Hope to see some change In the midst of all the strain Hoping for the answer that I need And one too many candle lights were cancelled Couldn't go on in a world like this So you better shine so bright Cause we're up against the night And the shadows always crave a full eclipse
