In our post on Street Sweeper Social Club’s “Paper Planes” cover, we predicted their version of “Mama Said Knock You Out” would be “explode-your-face dynamite.” Call it prophesy or just an ear for the inevitable, but now we can hear that LL Cool J cover and confirm that it’s exactly as brain-shattering as expected. Tom Morello bursts forward with shrieking guitar while Boots Riley channels LL almost as well as Bob Dylan did.

The cut comes off their upcoming The Ghetto Blaster EP, due August 10th. Don’t call it a comeback! (via MissInfo)
