Derek Christoff aka D-Sisive just dropped “Graceland”, which will appear on his upcoming Asian Elvis mixtape, scheduled for release on July 31st. On “Graceland”, Derek rocks over the Black Milk-produced “Dada”, off the Danny Brown/Black Milk collab EP Black and Brown. I’m definitely excited for Asian Elvis, as Jonestown 2 was one of my favourite projects of last year. Check out what Derek has to say and stream/download “Graceland” below.
This song has been through a few name changes since I recorded it last Tuesday. It was originally titled Bubba Ho Tep, after the Bruce Campbell film [for obvious reasons]. Then I renamed it Don Mckellar, after the brilliant Candian director/actor, for patriotic reasons. After sitting on that title, I decided to not give this one a NAME name. It’s the Asian Elvis jumpoff so I wanted it to be simple.
My home inspired the majority of the lyrics. Positively and negatively. So it made sense to go with the home of the mixtape’s inspiration.
