Culture: Hip Hop & Jazz, HBE Covers OutKast’s “SpottieOttieDopaliscious”

For week three of October we continue the Official, Unofficial Jazz month with @HypnoticBrass Ensemble

Hypnotic Brass Ensemble (or HBE) are eight brothers from the south side of Chicago.

Listen to HBE cover OutKast‘s SpottieOttieDopaliscious.

“At night we used to sneak under the covers and listen to NWA and Public Enemy. Ice Cube and Eazy-E were our heroes.” Very young, they formed their first group, GWC (Gangsters With A Curfew), which morphed into Wolf Pak (Wolves on the Lookout for Pigs And Klansmen). “We used to hum. We used to all hum the same way that we play our horns now, everybody on beat boxes or making harmonies, and we’d pass the mike around and rap.”
