DJ Prince is getting ready to drop his debut LP Test My Sound on May 13th โ€” to celebrate, he’s giving us an exclusive preview, with the track “Shottas” featuring Brooklyn hip-hop standby Sean Price available exclusively from LargeUp.com.

With a name straight out of basement lore, the track opens with allusions to classic dancehall tracks, and then opens into a more classic-sounding hip-hop flow. It fits in well with Prince’s overall inspiration, which is a coherent marriage of hip-hop and dancehall. He debuted the concept with a mixtape of the same title last fall, telling us that to make the tape, he “stole Missyโ€™s swag and drank some of Mad Lionโ€™s herbal roots tonic.”

Now he’s working to get everyone hyped for Test My Soundโ€”just last week he released a video for “Just A Lil Bit” off the mixtape over at Okayplayer. Prince will be celebrating the upcoming LP with a listening party this Thursdayโ€”don’t forget to RSVP.ย Listen to the track below, and let us know what you think!
