I'm frustrated with lyrical hip hop right now. I feel like we see shimmering lights of sincerity in some of today's major acts, but it's a very definitive, specific, and minuscule "some." I'm not sure if this is because of the economic status of the music industry, seeing that each and every artist has imminently succumbed to the desire for more funds… However, this is no post of negativity, this is an introduction to why I love music: anyone can make it, and make it well.
Today I bring you Boston natives STL GLD (Moe Pope & The Arcitype) who released the official video for their single, "Sunrise" featuring Brooklyn toed artist Tea Leigh. Tea's complement Pope’s "effortless" flow layered above sultry beats by The Arcitype. With this release, they announce the duo's upcoming debut album My Monday Morning Music due August 12 on AR Classic Records/Brick Records. STL GLD's first single, "Cocaine".
My Monday Morning Music (or MMMM) is a derivative of the countless influences that have graced Moe and The Arcitype since the beginning. Be on a close watch, and try to stick to lyrical.
