A bunch of months ago, Rusty Shackles approached me about working on a project together. I assumed he wanted to draw me in the nude. Instead, we realized, over twitter, that our love for The League combined with his dope art skills and my “ehhh” rap skills combined with the tireless efforts of our friends could result in a fun EP. This is that EP! Since you’re likely a fan of nerdcore, you’re probably not that aware of the world of sports in general, making a show like The League not something that would normally jump out at you. Quickly smack yourself in the mouth, boot up Netflix, and shotgun season 1. Do it. It’s only a few episodes and it is really excellent. This album isn’t like the music shown on the show. I don’t make hilarious Taco songs. I do my thing. I try to get into the skin of my favorite characters and try to figure out what they might say if they were rappers. This is my homage to a terrific piece of pop culture that, frankly, is only now getting a fraction of the love it deserves. Welcome to Bowling For Shiva: A Tribute To The League. A Rusty Shackles Joint.
