Danger Mouse’s song from Edgar Wright’s forthcoming film, Baby Driver features Run The Jewels and Big Boi on the track.
‘Chase Me’ is a triumvirate rap caper from the film’s soundtrack which has 30 tunes on it.
Both Killer Mike of Run the Jewels and Big Boi appear in the film too.
“Edgar showed me a cut of the movie last year and I loved the Atlanta connection. I’ve been doing more hip-hop stuff recently, so I bugged both Run The Jewels and Big Boi to jump on it. We’ve all known each other for years and talked about working together before so I’m really glad this could happen now.”
The original album was a successful collaboration which weaved interludes and inspiration from Adult Swim TV show characters like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost, Harvey Birdman. Guests included Talib Kweli, Ghostface Killah, and Cee Lo Green.
The 3xLP vinyl remastered reissue courtesy of DOOM’s own label METALFACE Records has extra tracks and comes with the previously digital-only Occult Hymn EP and two more tracks, ‘Mad Nice’ featuring The Roots’ Black Thought & Vinny Price, one of which you can hear below.
