“The title is an inside joke. I would never order a Long Island Iced Tea. I like good bourbon,” The Coup frontman Boots Riley so vitally clarifies. Inspired by larger things, The Coup and members of Japanther, teamed up with director Kelly Gallagher to create a stop-motion homage to the lives of Oscar Grant and Trayvon Martin for The Coup's track, "Long Island Iced Tea, Neat." What started as a late night post-show recording session has come to fruition as a fun and purposeful indie-rap hit.
The track is off The Coup's latest album Sorry To Bother You via Anti-.
