Eso Tre and Subz are L.A. duo Substance Abuse. The former URB Next 100 picks dropped their debut Brand New Crime in 1998, following up with 2006’s Overproof which featured Motion Man, Saafir and Rasco and received four-star marks from URB and Scratch. “We”re big fans of Tha Alkaholiks and have fond memories of going to the Coast II Coast release party back in the day, so working with Tash was a pretty surreal experience”, says Eso.
Eso continues, “We tried to capture a little bit of the vibe from the 21 & Over and Coast II Coast albums with this track but with a more updated feel. We wanted to have a party jam but still keep the lyrical content, and Tash definitely came through in that respect. Tash also was really proactive in coming with ideas for how to flip the video and we appreciate how involved he was in that. We also got to perform with him the night we filmed the final sequence of the vid which was a lot of fun”.
The track Don’t Get Us Wrong is produced by Waes One and is taken from the forthcoming album Background Music which features guest appearances from the likes of Sadat X, MC Eiht, Myka Nyne, Percee P and Max Julien. The video is directed by Chris Le.
