Random and Mr. Miranda Team for "Planet Silk"

I don't want to get too hyperbolic here, but this year Jay-Z and Kanye teamed up for one of the year's biggest albums, and I can't help but make the comparison when I think about Phoenix emcees Mr. Miranda and Mega Ran hooking up for a combo album.

Titled The Memorandum, and due out in December, the duo just dropped the second single from the record, titled "Planet Silk."

Produced by Mute with DJ Les, the track is a old-school banger. The track is smooth, and includes, as all raps should, a line about Hot Pockets.

Get a taste of the cut behind the cut -- and stay tuned for more news about the full length.
