Meyhem Lauren has teamed up with fellow Queens rapper Action Bronson for a new track titled Garlic and Oil. The track will feature on Meyhem’s upcoming mixtape, Piatto D’Oro, set for release later in the year.
Those New York style raps are felt heavily throughout both halves of this track; Bronson and Meyhem’s flows go together like, well – garlic and oil. The title isn’t a reflection of how well the two mesh, but a reference to the fact that there are two different beats, courtesy of DJ Shadow and A-Villa, on the track, each with their own sweet verses from both rappers.
The two have been doing a lot together lately. Meyhem has been featured frequently on Bronson’s Viceland show, Fuck That’s Delicious, and he’s also got a new series of his own coming soon to Juxtapoz Magazine: Got the Fever TV, which will feature interviews with graffiti artists.
Meyhem and Bronson also showed off their freestyle skills recently when they stopped by Eminem’s Sirus XM channel Shade 45 to support Fuck, That’s Delicious. They delivered a freestyle over an Alchemist beat, with – wait for it – Wayne Brady of Whose Line Is It Anyway? fame, who may have shown them just how it is done.
Piatti D’Oro is the follow-up to Meyhem’s 2014 mixtape Silk Pyramids. Check out Garlic and Oil below.
