Busdriver's "Me-Time (with the Pulmonary Palimpsest)" Digital Single Available on iTunes

Breath-Defying Word Wiz's Jhelli Beam in Stores June 9th

"To think of Busdriver's music as hip-hop is to think of Frank Zappa's as rock, Raymond Scott's as jazz or George Clinton's as funk. The classification doesn't quite cover how much more the music says," writes Jim Fusilli at the Wall St. Journal, and in a single sentence managed to capture the complexity of Busdriver's sound

Filled with humor, intelligence and cheekiness in equal parts, Busdriver is possibly the first hip hop artist to do what he do over Mozart's Sonata in A Major, the backing track to his first single "Me Time (with the Pulmonary Palimpsest)," available now on iTunes. His full-length Jhelli Beam is in stores June 9th.

Busdriver has a handful of upcoming shows, including Jhelli Beam record release shows in New York and Los Angeles.
