The Sting (feat. Homeboy Sandman)

A 2 track boom bap/nineties single (8m 3s) — released May 13th 2013 on Wah Wah 45s

Hip hop / electronica outfit from Leeds, Paper Tiger, unleash their final offering before the release of their debut album this summer, and it comes complete with a very special guest.

Having recently supported Stone's Throw recording's NYC-based MC Homeboy Sandman at his sell out London show, both camps hit it off immediately and in no time at all a collaboration between the two was complete! "The Sting" sees the U.S. rapper trade rhymes with Paper Tiger's very own Raphael Attar, telling the story of a lost and rediscovered first love – a story with a sting in the tail.

"The Sting" has a melodic, "Golden Era" feel, but with Paper Tiger's trademark production edge, which is even more evident on the very tasty "…And Then I Bounced" remixed, which chops up the vocals and lets the beats do the talking.

Look out for live shows from Paper Tiger in the next few months across the country, and for that debut long-player, due for release on Wah Wah 45s in July.
