As we enter the new year we’re excited to be bringing you not only the best in emerging hip-hop from the AU, but to start introducing our audience to moves being made elsewhere around the globe. Today we’re heading to the west coast of the United States for a track premiere from a youth collective out of the Bay Area, California.
TheMoreThanEvers is a chilled, electronic producer from Santa Cruz and he’s linked up with Oakland neo-soul singer and creative Grace D and spitter Killa-Stryder for ‘Stubborn Dreamer’; a thought-provoking easy-listen which draws elements from a similar LA youth collective; OFWGKTA.
Coming in just under three minutes, in a Noname-like delivery, Grace D offers rhymes about floating minds and hazy smoke over ambient, cloudy production before K-S comes through with the final assist on a Hodgy Beats type cadence.
The group are focused on pushing the whole Bay Area, inspired by motivational quotes and anecdotes from strong African American leaders through a soon to be released video series. Something to keep an eye on.
