The $hoots – F.T.P (FukThaPolice)

A couple of days ago, Chicago collective The $hoots, sent us a new single entitled “F.T.P” (FukThaPolice). With America’s current political and social climate, the song matches the sentiment of many young American’s who are fed up with injustice at the hands of the police (ironic??). Produced by in-house producer Weezy Taylor, the record features 20 Gramz and BJ Da Balla; serving as a quick look at Weezy Taylor’s self titled EP which is due out in early 2015. Another solid track from The $hoots, check it out above and keep an eye out for more.

These guys are definitely on the come up, peep the video for “Plottin'” above and be on the look out for more from The $hoots Collective.
