New Track: "Mad Men Jam Boys" - Black Thought x STS x Truck North

The STS-RJD2 collaboration has resulted in an album of excellent hip hop. Now, with “Mad Men Jam Boys,” STS has spun the classic RJD2 Mad Men theme song, “Beautiful Mind.” Produced by The Wurxs for their new project, Wurxs of Art, the song builds off that dramatic orchestration, enlisting the help of fellow Philly emcees Black Thought and Truck North. This heavy-hitting relay race of a track has anchors from start to finish.
