New York-based hip-hop collective Beast Coast counts a trio of notable groups in its ranks: Pro Era, Flatbush Zombies, and The Underachievers. While members have teamed up on tracks like Pro Era member Powers Pleasant’s “Pull Up” and even went on a joint tour back in 2013, they’ve never released a track as a unit. That changes today with the first-ever Beast Coast collaboration, “Left Hand”.
The track features all 10 Beast Coast MCs — Pro Era’s Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly, Kirk Knight, Nyck Caution, and Powers Pleasant; the Flatbush Zombies trio of Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, and Erick Arc Elliott; and AKTHESAVIOR and Issa Gold of The Underachievers — stepping to the mic in a cypher. With a slinky, menacing beat from Tyler Dopps and Sam Wish, the track is a fearsome squad effort teasing the group’s long-anticipated full-length project.
Check it out below. Update — Wednesday, April 24th: The new music video for “Left Hand” has been revealed. Helmed by director/photographer Levi Turner (SZA, Pro Era), the Brooklyn-shot clip features Beast Coast rapping inside a candlelit mansion.
Update March 12th, 12:00 p.m. EST: Beast Coast have announced a full summer tour schedule, including a show at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks in April, and appearances at festivals like Governors Ball and Rolling Loud. Find tickets here, and the full itinerary below.
