chuck-inglish-blended-babies-ev-zepplin

Ahead of its release tomorrow, Chuck Inglish and Blended Babies have unloaded an early stream of their collaborative album, Ev Zepplin. Chuck, who’s obviously best known for crafting The Cool Kids’ progressive sound, lets Rich Gains and JP handle the production duties here — and given their track record of cooking up heat for the likes of Asher Roth, Anderson .Paak and Ab-Soul, that’s by no means a bad call. Instead, as the album title and artwork suggests, Chuck lets his hair wig down and indulges in his rockstar fantasy on the 10-track record. Guest spots come from Asher Roth, Boldy James, A$ton Matthews, Buddy, Nate Santos and more.

Stream Ev Zepplin in full below and look for the album to hit iTunes tomorrow (April 29).
