Rising supergroup Bad Poetry Club share promising new single “Victory Lap”

East Coast hip-hop quartet Bad Poetry Club are back with “Victory Lap”: a refreshing jazzy-infused brand new track.

Bad Poetry Club are a supergroup comprising of Tonio Sagan (production), Gable “Honeycomb” Johnson (beatboxing, rapping), Sotorios (rhymes) and Moon Hooch’s Michael Wilbur (horns). Despite honoring the essence of hip-hop music, the band don’t consider themselves as a traditional act.

On TheUntz.com, which premiered the track, Bad Poetry Club explained:

Now most rap groups today that aren’t legends or rich enough to buy beats from superstars tend to fall back on trite sounds and familiar tropes that don’t sound vintage or retro—just plain old and lame. That’s why you bring in a true fan of the art of hip-hop who really understands what it means to create a foundation for lyrical flow, but also can get creative with the booms and baps to the point where the beat can stand on its own, and the rhymes are tastefully decorating the inside of a beautiful mansion.

Bad Poetry Club‘s “Victory Lap” is totally in line with that statement by offering a track that is not respectful of the vintage spirit just for the sake of aesthetics.
