On Black Friday of 2014, Ras G and the masked rapper Koreatown Oddity formed the group 5 Chuckles. As 5 Chuckles, Ras and Oddity fell somewhere between Ice Cube and Chris Tucker on Friday and Madlib and Doom recording “American’s Most Blunted”. Well 5 Chuckles is back with the sequel to ramp up the hijinks on In The Wrld.
The sequel nearly finds a narrative, as 5 Chuckles are active stoners who find themselves at the beach, at a barbecue, on the set of “House Party Twelve”, pulled over by the cops on “Da Po-Lice (phuck em)”, and at the BET Awards. The same cannot be said for Open Mike Eagle on “Diz nee Land”, he’s a different breed of green card holder. Lucid psychedelics of cinematic soul collide with trashcan funk throughout the duration, all courtesy of Ras G’s deep crates.
In The Wrld features guest contributions from fellow Los Angelenos VerBS, Open Mike Eagle, and Zeroh.
