Watch the original short HERE

Once again, Joel tapped me to do more music and lyrics for his "HANDS UP" series. Funnily enough, this was actually the FIRST short I was hired to do for Joel, but plans had changed, and the beat that was originally intended for "Rhythm & Ambush" was used for "The Plan" instead. When time came to do the music for R&A, I was in a creative rut, so I got my mans DJ Chidow help me out. A lot of the elements you hear in this track, except for most of the drums and sirens, were mostly done by Chidow.

Now there's a reference I didn't expect to see :P

this sounds like something straight from space jam. no cap.

It's sounds like a basketball game like Barkley Shut Up and Jam! or Tecmo Super NBA Basketball. I love it.

It sounds like the prison alarm sample in this song is supposed to reference "yessir!" from Born like this. It's a generic enough sample so understandable that it's not from that song. Regardless I made the connection instantly and thought it was a pretty cool parallel.

We didn't use any DOOM samples in here lol.

Love this funk
