The Beatnuts & Tha Alkaholiks Dropping ‘Liknuts’ EP
Two of hip-hop’s most brash and heralded underground groups from the ’90s, the Alkaholiks — otherwise known as Tha Liks — and the Beatnuts — made up of Psycho Les and JuJu — are joining forces. The two beat-loving, party ready camps, who represent Los Angeles and New York City, respectively, are dropping a collaborative EP.
“We got an EP coming with [the] Alkaholiks called ‘Liknuts,’ so look out for that. That’s gonna be before the Planet,” Les told Splash! Magazine during a video interview in Germany.
The Beatnuts’ new album, ‘Planet of the Crates,’ will be finished in the next few months, after the Queens duo is finished touring. “Well in the next month or two after we finish this tour, we’re going to go back home and finish it up,” said JuJu. “We already got a couple of joints that’s done already. We’re going to do like two or three joints tonight.”
As for the ‘Liknuts’ EP, Les explained that it would be arriving before the release of ‘Planet of the Crates.’ When asked what label the project will be released on, Les revealed that there were a couple of deals on the table while JuJu offered that it might be released through Universal Records.
The Beatnuts’ last album, ‘Milk Me,’ was released in 2004, while the Liks’ last effort, ‘Firewater,’ hit receptive ears in 2006.
