SOUND SPOT: GREEN STREET
Being a blogger that promotes a lot of independent and underground artists, I get tons of tunes sent to me from musicians on the come up. It's a gift and curse because sometimes I have to tell artists that I am not feeling their music enough to post about it. I don't enjoy saying those things, but being honest is important to me. I am a music fan first, so when I get some new music that is hot, it's truly a gift. A perfect example would be this hip-hop crew called Green Street that I just discovered recently. The producer of the group (Renaissance) hit me up on Twitter, and emailed me their album 'Crossroads' to check out. Once I put ears on the song "International Geographic" (Track 2) I knew that this was definitely my kind of hip-hop music. The production is dope and lyrical content by emcees Soupa and A-Live is solid! They have good chemistry together like two of my favorite groups Strange Fruit Project and Little Brother. I have kept this joint in heavy rotation ever since I downloaded it.
Now, it's time for you to get familiar with this talented group. The album is available for free download at GREEN STREET BANDCAMP so don't hesitate.
