Kooley High, Median & Halo “What’s The Deal” from DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme – The Solution Tape #1…

Here’s another exclusive track from DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme – The Solution Tape #1, this one courtesy of 9th Wonder proteges Kooley High, Solution guest/DJ Low Key collaborator Median* and recently retired NC rapper Halo. “What’s The Deal” was originally recorded 2 years ago for a now shelved DJ Low Key mixtape collaboration with Spitkicker (the tape was for their web site and they have no site since getting hacked in late 2008), but it only made sense to feature it on the Solution Tape #1 since the song is full on Colorado references including shouts to the Solution, Denver and our good but since closed friends the 400 and Bar Luxe.  Since then, Kooley High has been racking up props from all angles (including an upcoming tour with Solution favorites Tanya Morgan, check the dates at and Median is in the midst of recording a ridiculous follow up to his acclaimed debut Relief, definitely catch up on them if you’re not familiar.  The first Solution mixtape is set to drop on 2/26 as we celebrate our last night at the Funky Buddha before moving to our new home at Bar Standard (1037 Broadway) and there will be physical copies, don’t miss it.
