Diplo helmed electronic project, Major Lazer drops their latest animated video for the syrup soaked RiFF RAFF collab, “2 Cups.” Codeine is the theme of the day as the title implies. In the colorful animated clip, Styrofoam cups and bottles of the purple potion are on full display as well as a beefed up demented looking version of Jody High Roller. This track is not set to appear on Lazer’s upcoming LP Peace Is The Mission which is coming out next month.
Speaking of animation, in April, Lo and ML debuted their animated series Major Lazer on FXX in conjunction with the “Animation Domination” block. The series is slated to produce cameos from J.K. Simmons, Ezra Koenig, Tiesto, Aziz Ansari, Charli XCX, Andy Samburg, RiFF RAFF and others.
Music wise, the producer and DJ collective have released two full length albums, 2009′s Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do and 2013′s Free the Universe, which featured the breakout hit “Bubble Butt” featuring 2 Chainz, Bruno Mars and Tyga. Last year, they put out the EP Apocalypse Soon. Their forthcoming album Peace Is The Mission is scheduled to hit shelves June 1 via Mad Decent, powered by the single “Lean On” featuring DJ Snake and MO and “Night Riders” featuring Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Travi$ Scott and Mad Cobra.
