The homie Mouse Sucks dropped his new EP, Justatethebootyandifeelgreat a couple of weeks back. Mouse is in rare form on this project, unabashed confessions, sexual frustrations and relationship issues are front and center. Otherworldly production paired with Mouse’s unadulterated lyrics combine into some shit you’ve definitely never heard before. Justatethebootyandifeelgreat actually feels like a proclamation, he’s not talking about eating the booty, he’s really telling us he just fuckin did. Check out the EP for yourself below and stay tuned for more from Mouse Sucks.
The good people over at VICE have been churning out nothing but goodness as of late, among their many new ventures they’ve started a new series called “Streets By VICE.” The new series focuses on one specific street that embodies a particular city, the first one being Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn, New York. The historic avenue weaves through a large variety of the borough’s many eclectic neighborhoods, along the way Krishna stops to talk to people who help define the area. Check out the video above and keep an eye out for the next one.
In preparation for his upcoming project, the homie Mouse Sucks recently released a new track titled “Me Af/Bae Af.” Comprised of 2 tracks, the record is split down the middle with a spastic, possibly drug induced ode to his own weirdness; and an abstract, crawling croon. 2 completely different sounding instrumentals, Mouse not only shows off his vocal versatility, but also his production skills. Awkwardly catchy, but genuinely so and that’s why we like Mouse. Check out “Me Af/ Bae Af” below and keep an eye out for more from Mouse Sucks.
