Video: Playdough Samples "Bohemian Rhapsody" for "King of Queens"
As a teaser for his upcoming album Writer Dye: Deux or Die, which comes out October 22, Dallas rapper Playdough just unveiled this video for "King of Queens." The Queen part is taken literally, as the whole song hinges on a sample of "Bohemian Rhapsody," which Playdough repurposes for his own ride or die (or writer dye) message. This follows up the concept of his 2010 album, Writer Dye, which took snippets from Nirvana and Modest Mouse songs and used them for choruses as well.
