MP3: League Of Extraordinary Gz – “Let’s Go” Ft. Devin the Dude
The LOEGz Team with Texas Legend For Exclusive, Non-Album Single
Critical Praise for League Of Extraordinary Gz:
“The eight members of the group were a high-energy bunch, rapping with distinctive Texas twang and pogo dancing nonstop.” – The New York Times
“A goddamn typhoon onstage.” – Houston Press
“Eight immensely capable lyricists, all of whom bring a unique perspective, voice, and level of vigor to the stage” – Austin Chronicle cover story
“…what promises to be a defining group in Texas rap history: The League of Extraordinary Gz.”- DJ Booth
The League of Extraordinary Gz is dropping an exclusive track featuring Devin the Dude titled “Let’s Go.“ This collaboration follows LOEGz member Reggie Coby‘s work co-producing the track “Please Don’t Smoke Cheese” from Devin’s new album One For The Road.
Produced by Austin’s Matt Schad, “Let’s Go” features a soulful vocal refrain riding atop old-school orchestral swells and warm drum samples. This sound, Reggie says, inspired the MCs to “write a smooth track that would cater to the ladies.” In three verses, Reggie, Esbe Da 6th Street Bully, and Devin the Dude exude confidence with their slick moves to entice women. Reggie describes the song’s direct and clear message: “I’m feeling you and you’re feeling me so let’s go and do the damn thing.”
The LOEGz’ recently-released album, #LeagueShit, features appearances by Dead Prez, Grupo Fantasma, and more. #LeagueShit is available for streaming on DJ Booth and for purchase on iTunes.

League Of Extraordinary Gz Background:
When Austin, Texas, reality rap collective League of Extraordinary Gz recorded “We Gone Make It” in spring 2010, Octavis “Esbe Da 6th Street Bully” Berry stepped in the recording booth and yelled two words: “League Shit!”. Three years later, it has become an emphatic anthem, brand and title. The Bully’s vision formed in 2009 when his choice of eight members and three groups with their own budding local buzz – Dred Skott, Da COD and Southbound – sat in a driveway plotting a collaborative mixtape. In 2010 they debuted locally, played the South by Southwest Music Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest and were featured on MTV Jams’ Texas All-Star Edition. In 2011 they rocked over 60 shows, including a West Coast tour with Jackie Chain for their Concealed Weapons 3 mixtape, and a national tour with Dead Prez. Then, in October 2011, The Bully passed away suddenly due to a pulmonary embolism. As 2011 ended, the LOEGz were named one of Sonicbids’ Top 5 Hip Hop acts. They released The Plug EP in December. All of this came from a collective effort by three groups in three years via the foresight of a now-absent leader. All anticipation, questions or doubt after a few spins of The Plug EP will be quenched with their debut album #LeagueShit. Clearly rooted in traditional Hip Hop, #LeagueShit includes stout musicality and wildly free speech featuring Dead Prez, Bavu Blakes, Grupo Fantasma, and Slim Gravy of A.Dd+.
