Do you know the "Muffin Man?" Well, guess what? Now you do.
ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Oxymorrons (with two Rs) to premiere their new song "Muffin Man."
They describe the song as what a Queen song might sound like, if they collaborated and crossbred their sound with a southern rapper!
Oxymorrons have been making a name for themselves since the Queens-bred brothers D and K.I. joined forces in 2009.
Rounding out the lineup are drummer Matt Mayz and DJ Omar Hernandez.
Oxymorrons have shared the stage with the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Gym Class Heroes, Erykah Badu, Janelle Monáe, Ke$ha and Neon Hitch. Their new track "Muffin Man" was produced by Jaakko Manninen (Beats and Styles).
"Writing 'Muffin Man' was a blast," Oxymorron told us. "Working with Jaakko on the production really pushed us to a greater level on pushing things outside the box while remaining in your own. What inspired the song was an idea of what a song would sound like if Queen and a southern rapper collaborated on a track together. Two hours later came 'Muffin Man.'"
With all of that in mind, listen to "Muffin Man."
