Andre 3000 don’t get outta bed for just anybody!

The official remix to the most recent Divine Council track, “DECEMBA” made its debut live during Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio Show last month. The song features Divine Council rapper $ilk Money and revered artist, Andre Benjamin. Divine Council’s ICYTWAT produced the track.

Divine Council is a crew consisting of Richmond-based rappers Silk Money, Cyrax Bathbwoy, Lord Linco and Chicago-based rapper/producer ICYTW*T. Rolling Stone heralds their sound as, “Classicist southern hip-hop with a subtly lyrical bent and a bit of a cool-kid edge.” They signed to Epic Records just this year.

Growing up in insulated Richmond, VA away from a major music market, Divine Council’s creativity and imagination was allowed to flourish, as they combined their diverse musical and cultural backgrounds, listening to everything from hip hop, to reggae (two members are of Jamaican ethnicity) and R&B soul. This, combined with growing up as internet natives almost entirely in the 00s, Divine Council has created an aesthetic influenced by a melange of both underground and pop culture references, visible throughout their music videos and cover art.

A buzzing young producer in his own right, Chicago’s ICYTW*T (18) has produced many of the crew’s most popular material as well as becoming one of the most in demand guest producers for emerging artists such as Madeintyo, Father, and ASAP Mob’s Playboi Carti.

Divine Council’s first EP on Epic Records, Council World, is currently available across streaming platforms. The project includes their viral hit single “P. Sherman (PS42WW$)”.
