Secret Circle (Lil Ugly Mane, Wiki, Antwon) “Keep It Low”

If the rapper-fan dynamic were a relationship, Lil Ugly Mane would be downright emotionally abusive. Between threatening to quit, releasing music at a snail’s pace, and giving little teases of things to come, it’s bred an desperation in many of his fans that would probably better if they cut the cord entirely. But we love his music. And when it was rumored months ago that Lil Ugly Mane would connect with two other spectacular rappers, California’s Antwon and NYC’s Wiki (who both released a bunch of material this past year, including a Wiki video yesterday) a glimmer of hope was restored. We would get one more project from the elusive rapper after all.

Late at night, he posted the first single “Keep It Low” — listed as a preview on Soundcloud, but seems like a full track — and features all 3 emcees, with Ugly on production as Shawn Kemp. On the Facebook post, Ugly Mane gave some history of the song’s origin:

“Antwon hit the secret circle secret groupchat from germany in the middle of the damn night and said the euro drugs told him today was the day to fucking drop something. This was the first track Twon and Wik and I ever recorded together, the first time we were all in the same room, so what better spot to start than the beginning. Here’s to Secret Circle and making rap music with your friends.”

Flipping a Q-Tip and Mos Def vocal samples over precise hi-hat loops, he creates a framework for a perverted track. Twon and Wiki warm up the track, and Ugly finishes out with a throwback to early lyrics from “Serious Shit.” No word on a release date for the full tape yet, will probably be just as mysterious as the details have been up until this point.
