First Serve – “Pushin’ Aside, Pushin’ Along” (WeAreFirstServe.Tumblr.Com / 2012)

The first single off the forthcoming collaborative concept album from Posdnous and Dave of De La Soul and French production duo 2 & 4.

From The Press Release:

“Due to hit the streets in April 2012, the “First Serve” album tells the story of two dreamers (Deen Whitter and Jacob “Pop Life” Barrow) in a basement struggling to start their musical career, the battles they face, through to the point that they eventually release their debut single, ‘make it big’ and their hard work and persistence finally pays off. As we know that is rarely where the story ends and the story of “First Serve” is no different. Taking place in an animated world that could have been imagined by Hawley Pratt on Magic Mushrooms, the high spirited and often hilarious journey is pure old school Hip-Hop; skits, disco, beats, funk, quips, burns and hustlin’ all included.”

First Serve – “Mrs. Whitter Skit”
