Remember that awesome Stones Throw x AIAIAI competition that we told you about in August? Well, true to his word, Peanut Butter Wolf has picked out his winner from the high volume of entries received.
The official winner is Christian Edward Guglielmo aka ED-APE from Queens, New York who earns a 7″ release on Stones Throw and a pair of Stones Throw Edition TMA-1s. Have a listen to his track below, and check the Stones Throw x AIAIAI collab over here.
ED-APE had this to say on the matter:
‘I recorded these vocals titled Up, Up, Up late one night in my Queens, NY basement while blasted. I had just seen the promo video for the contest and I thought to myself, Wolf seems sad. So I went about trying to make something fun. I then got even blasteder, watched the video again, and was inspired by footage of the original record being played in a club. Everybody seemed to be wearing a smile. I just pictured myself on that stage, in that party and spit what I thought would keep em hype. An anthem with a simple style that swings, and lyrics that put a smile on your face. MC shit.’
