Flying Lotus has come full-circle in his time spent working with Adult Swim. Long gone are the days when the only FlyLo you’d hear on the network is a bump between infomercials. Now he’s headlining the Adult Swim Singles series and even creating theme music for Aqua TV Show Show. He first debuted his rap alter ego, Captain Murphy, in 2012 with “Between Friends,” featuring Earl Sweatshirt. Playing off the title, “Between Villains” is the follow-up track for the 2013 edition of things.
The track features Earl Sweat, Thundercat, and the ever-elusive DOOM, under his Viktor Vaughn alias. I guess you could call this is an alter ego extravaganza. True to villainous form, FlyLo masterfully sets the mood with eerily crafted instrumentals perfect for all four of the MC’s styles. Not going to spoil it for you, but let’s just say ish gets nasty on the track. “Between Villains” will be available for download on Monday via Adult Swim.
