New York-via-London-via-Berlin producer drops lyrical debut

I guess when you get some classic hip-hop dropped on you in a day, you should balance it off with some brand new school shit to keep the palate fresh. Here’s Thunderbird Gerard‘s T.R.O.U.B.L.E. EP made available for free download. New on the world stage, Gerard has distinguished himself via his lyrical flows and EDM-leaning beats that have moved the rapper/producer from New York to London (which inspired his cheery “London Is a Bitch” track) to his current hometown of Berlin. There he assembled his T.R.O.U.B.L.E. debut, and somewhere along the way earned BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’ tag. Give the 4-track EP a listen below — it features contributions from DJ Stickle, Metronomy’s Olugbenga, Two Inch Punch, Amanda Ghost, Don Diablo and more…
