DOWNLOAD :: Blackalicious – “Toy Jackpot”November 30, 2010
Blackalicious have released their first track in five years as part of Target’s Christmas Gig. The compilation features the Gift of Gab and Chief Xcel’s offering, “Toy Jackpot,” along with tracks from from Guster, Darker My Love, Natalie Hemby, Crystal Antlers, Bishop Allen, Jenny O., Little Jackie, Best Coast, Wavves, Coconut Records, Little Isidore, The Pinker Tones, and Ceci Bastida.
Some music takes you back, like way back when footie pajamas were the sleepwear of choice and eating candy canes for breakfast seemed like a good idea. Blackalicious delivers this song from the point of view of a child on Christmas morning, channeling the excitement one could only feel during a total, paper-tearing toyfest.
