No one does futuristic, weirdo hip-hop quite like David Wang under his Mochipet guise, and come April, fans will have an entire album's worth of the stuff when he releases Microphonepet through his Daly City Records imprint.
A sneak peek at the album tells us this release is going to be packed with danceable rhythms, silly rapping, and strange noises. Jahcoozi, Dopestyle, The Freshest Kids, Casual & Opio (of Hieroglyphics), and Meanest Man Contest all make appearances on the disc. No word on the tracklisting yet, but we'll keep you posted.
