CMPND: The Culprit
New music from CMPND with the release of their latest single, The Culprit. I caught up with Vitamin G the other week and he confirmed that a new album is on the way, so stay tuned for more news on that when I have it. For now though, enjoy this latest banger. The superb video was made by Jenna.lec.
Good to see CMPND back at it, as they drop off their first new single since the release of their debut album, Eagle Court, back in 2019. WEAINTPLAYIN finds the trio still at their grimiest and still as on point as ever, reigniting that same infectious energy with Wundrop on the beat. Knowing High Focus, this will likely be the start of an album rollout, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for more news on that coming soon. The video was directed by Honey JD.
