Rip Slyme Greatest Hits

You may already know Rip Slyme since their song "Super Shooter," a B-side to one of their singles, gathered them some fame abroad when it was used as the intro theme for the animation series "Gantz." What you may not know is that Rip Slyme is perhaps the biggest name in Japanese mainstream hip-hop.

Get a retrospective on the multiple-award-winning, freesytling, laid-back, and bumping band Rip Slyme with their new greatest hits collection, "Good Job!" Disc includes two entirely new tracks recorded for this album, and a limited amount of orders are still being accepted for the preorder only version of the CD with bonus music video DVD!

This album is an essential listen to any fan of American hip-hop acts like The Pharcyde, Jurassic 5, or The Beastie Boys, and their upbeat, relaxing sound makes them accessible to fans of Jpop as well!

If you like what you hear, make sure to check out the rest of their back catalog, to get a handle on their over ten years of experience as a hip-hop collective, and over four years of activity on a major label!
