I got the word that Brooklyn lifestyle collective known as “MOST HEYE” was releasing their debut single “Remember.” Some info from their most recent press release:
Brooklyn lifestyle collective MOST HEYE has announced the release of their debut single titled, “Remember.” The new track features the street-savvy lyrics of Sin, just one-half of the emerging New York based hip hop duo. Known for their lucid underground sound, backpack styled rap and trendsetting sneaker designs, MOST HEYE aims to capture the attention of music and fashion enthusiasts alike. The new single, “Remember,” is currently available on Soundcloud at: http://buff.ly/1xIRKUu
So I checked it out and was pretty impressed. Sin’s clever lyrics include gems like”another crab in the bucket” and “Ever since I caught my first plate northbound on the interstate” that flow easily and get stuck in your head, but that really adds to the track is the female vocal backing that’s layered underneath. It elevates the song to a higher level of musicality and distinguishes it from so many standard rap songs which are high on rhymes and short on music. You know the kind if you spent any time online checking out indie rap music. They typically feature crappy radio shack microphones and early 90s model, Boss drum machine beats(not that I don’t like those drum machines.) “Remember” is more advanced than that. It’s a real “song” with legit production and talented performers. This music doesn’t have a cheap feel to it at all, and while I don’t ever really get into the whole vague “revolution” theme that seems to incorporate itself into nearly every hip hop song, I certainly would bump this jam in my car without thinking twice about it.
