addicted-2-booombap thumbs & perfect hair are drivers "opus" after almost 2 decades of making some of the quirkiest most left field hip hop around ,he came through with these two masterpieces . the beats u find here are electronic & glitchy in nature, which makes a perfect landscape for drivers off kilter delivery & political tone . I have to say I was not always a fan of driver but these two albums have made me a fan for life . I will be checking out new work from him for now own ... PS. if u want a physical of "thumbs" this is the only place I've seen it for sale , so cop that shit ! Favorite track: MUCH (prod. by Kenny Segal x Mike Parvizi x MrCarmack).

Adam Usry I love the artistry behind "Thumbs". The various sounds and vibes given off are unmatched. This album had the biggest impact on my approach to music, perspective of life, and overall love for the rap genre. Favorite track: Species of Property (prod. by Labeatski).

Shane Veno Driver has progressed so much in these years, I genuinely believe this is his best work so far; self released and with no promo, how driver likes it I would assume. Favorite track: Species of Property (prod. by Labeatski).

about

Thumbs are no longer anatomical but rather the static characters of approval for a job well done. The likes that catalog our individual preferences.
They grade the successes playing out in a virtual world and within our own minds. Endlessly gathered into a sprawling market-ready databases rivalled only by our idea of a God.

Thumbs was made as a mixtape by Busdriver to further explore the concept of a homogenous citizenry from his last record Perfect Hair. It draws from the defining musical tropes of the LA underground rap experience with the isolation born from racial politics fixed as a central theme. Frequent collaborators such as milo, Mono/Poly, Kenny Segal, Fumitake Tamura all appear for the most action-packed Busdriver release to date.
