SXSW Song Of The Day: Blackillac – Payoff

Today saw yet another announcement from SXSW revealing the next batch of acts set to play in Austin next month, with more than 70 new names added to the list.

Among those names is Austin hip hop duo Blackillac, made up of rappers ZEALE and Phranchyze. The duo are joined by Evan Felts & GOZÉ on their single “Payoff”, which makes excellent use of the hook from The Jeffersons theme song.

Speaking of The Jeffersons, I recently learned that Sherman Hemsley was a big prog rock fan, an unexpected but also pretty cool fact. That fact has nothing to do with Blackillac really, but hey, aren’t you better off now for knowing that? Yes, yes you are. Now go listen to some Blackillac.
