It’s been a little over a year since we last spoke with local hip-hop artist and #bestfriend Joey Batts. That’s too long.

Batts has been busy, it turns out, and not just with sticker-bombing; expect a new album and Kickstarter campaign this spring or summer. In the meantime, have a listen to “Monster Raps” (below), the new single by Batts and his excellent band Them. Head to the Main Pub in Manchester tonight at 9 p.m. to see the group live. The Family Dinner opens.

Check back here soon for the video for “Monster Raps,” which I’m sure will be as entertaining as Batts’ other videos.
