We've heard Corey Taylor rap before — most notably on "Spit It Out," the second single released off watershed 1999 self-titled album. Today fans get a more modern showcase of the dynamic vocalist's range in the form of a collaborative hip-hop track with U.K. rapper Kid Bookie. The cut is a "revamped, heavier" version of "Stuck in My Ways," a song that originally appeared on Bookie's 2018 release Shake Up.
The musicians' union on the project appears to have started off with a January tweet in which Kid Bookie hit up Taylor: "@CoreyTaylorRock I gotta work with you before both of us leave this earth," he wrote, to which the Slipknot and Stone Sour singer responded, "Let's talk my friend."
And talk they did. The finished product is an infectious mid-tempo banger with a thick, dark atmosphere through which Kid Bookie's staccato raps cut through with a razor-sharp edge. When Taylor makes his presence known, at the 2:34 mark, the singer's voice is instantly recognizable and characteristically articulate. His rap grows faster and more intense as it goes, lasting nearly a full minute before the song explodes back into its main riff. Check it out above.
