Single: The Weatherman - The Only Weatherman Song (prod. by EL-P)

Today they're known primarily as MHz Legacy, but back in the day they were called The Weatherman... Who you ask? Read the names of stellar Ohio emcees on the cover art for this, a new single they've dug outta their vaults...

"The Only Weatherman Song" is a landmark recording to the group and it's fans b/c it's one of the few times that all of the names involved were in the studio together...

Copywrite refelcts on the occaision:

“This song was recorded around the time I was working on my debut album, The High Exhaulted, and Cannibal Ox was working on their album, The Cold Vein. It was a rare occasion to have Tage Future, Camu Tao, Jakki Da Motamouth, Cage, Cannibal Ox, El-P, and myself all in the same room at once, so I told them we needed to seize the moment and record something. El started pulling up beats and we all instantly agreed on this one. The beat played and we wrote – whoever had their verse first hit the mic booth, which, at that time, was El-P’s closet, and the rest is history. Camu was probably smokin’ a blunt with Vordul, so neither of them is on the song; I don’t know why El didn’t drop a verse. Back then we titled it “The Only Weathermen Song,” since it was so tough to get all of us together at the same time.”
