Tuxedo is Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One. Their debut album is coming out on Stones Throw, March 3rd, 2015.

+ 2/LP Vinyl pre-order available at Stones Throw
+ Pre-order at Itunes with immediate download of "Do It"

Mixtapes are part of the reason Tuxedo exists. Jake and Mayer made these two mixtapes long before they knew each other, about 10 years ago. Shortly after meeting they exchanged these mixes, and realized the ground was already set for their collaboration.

Here's Jake One's "AR Music" and Mayer Hawthorne (DJ Haircut) "Shoot The Duck"
