"There is a charm about the forbidden," said Mark Twain, "that makes it unspeakably desirable." Whether it's on a personal level or a global scale, sins have got the best of us. We buy things we don't need, hate people that are trying to their own path, and over-inflate our self worth all the time. But when these vices have already consumed you, what choice do you have? Do you continue down a path of hedonistic living or quit altogether?
Aaron Cohen's "L.E.G. (Lust, Envy, Greed)" is a track that resembles a balancing act between the two outcomes. We all want to get paid and ball hard every so often, but it's easy to get caught up into a life that's out of control, something that the Inner City Kids crew member makes note of. Cohen's atmospheric flow mends well with the ominous beat supplied by Lord Plawz and the video keeps things simple with a series of shots that bounce between the rapper dropping rhymes over a hazy background and quick clips of individuals enjoying their inner desires. Aaron Cohen's latest project, an EP titled You Wouldn't Know, is out now for free on his Soundcloud page, so you've got no excuses to check it out and listen to it on the regular.
