Jesse Dangerously and Ambeez are your rap dads now. “Home Team,” the first single from their debut MC/producer collaboration project, The Library Steps, is smooth, comfortable, and confident, even if Jesse sings a little out of tune.
It’s been compared to A Tribe Called Quest or Outkast accompanied by Lo Fi Beats To Study To, but all that means is that it’s such solid sample-based hip-hop that the resulting album, Rap Dad, Real Dad, sounds somehow both timeless and extremely old.

The video was directed by actor/comedian/RAPPER Gil Anderson, who is not from X-Files but IS Jesse’s cousin and also raps on the second single… coming soon! The director of photography was Keith Mitchell.
You can also get a digital 12″ of Home Team, with a remix is provided by Toronto’s TLO, best known as Shad’s main producer and live DJ! He adds a layer of mean and a keen scratch routine. DJs will appreciate the radio edits, instrumental versions, and a capella for your blends and mashups!
