Chinese rap group Higher Brothers released their debut album Black Cab in June last year, cementing their status at the forefront of their country's scene with infectious personality and well-chosen production. This year, they're back with new music and a North American tour which kicks off in Vancouver on February 2.

Today, Higher Brothers are releasing the Journey To The West EP, which features Ski Mask The Slump God on the first and last track. They've previously collaborated with artists like Keith Ape, Famous Dex, and Joji. Where the Black Cab album had sonic variety with slower or more melodic songs, this EP is all about turning up. The beats hit hard and each member of Higher Brothers comes with a wild energy that matches what we're used to hearing from Ski Mask.
