“Pseudo Slang make the thinking fan’s kind of hip-hop.” – Chicago Sun Times
â€œWhen I first heard Pseudo Slang ‘Yes Doubt’ I was floored, and it became my #1 Song of 2008. Iâ€™ve been doing radio for 18 years but few songs ever gave me chills, ‘Yes Doubt’ was one of them. I can’t wait for the album.” – DJ 3rd Rail, Chicago DJ and Radio Legend, 89.3FM WNUR, DJ3RDRAIL.COM
Pseudo Slang’s quintessential jazz-tinged beats keep bumping on the latest track “Yes Doubt” from their recent release We’ll Keep Looking. The duo, Tone Atlas and Emcee Sick, directly state one of their defining principles: the belief that it’s all right to question yourself from time to time, “It’s hard not to have doubts / When all you got is your intellect / And cats blow up with some weak shit / Off the strength of internet marketing / That’s why Sick and Tone drop significant poems.” No matter how tough it may be sometimes, Pseudo Slang understand the result is worth the hard work; that the music is the reward of the struggle. As though it was his faith, Emcee Sick proclaims it’s always better to doubt and get your priorities straight, “So what the heck if we profess doubt / We givin’ enough respect to what the rest about / But never rest cause then you’re out / Stay on your toes, yes doubt.”
We’ll Keep Looking is available everywhere now via Fat Beats Records.
Pseudo Slang is a hip-hop duo from the Buffalo, NY music scene. Emcee Sick of the Xtracts of Slang and Tone Atlas of the Pseudo Intellectuals teamed up about a decade ago to form Pseudo Slang – a side project that took on a career of its own. After their debut release, The Catalogue (a compilation of tracks PS laid down from 1999 to 2004), Pseudo Slang switched to full time. After being quickly signed to stalwart hip-hop label Fat Beats Records, Pseudo Slang released the single “Broke and Copasetic” in 2006. National and international tours followed, and the build towards their first complete studio release as a duo is almost at its apex: We’ll Keep Looking is available now via Fat Beats Records.
