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.

TheMoreThanEversĀ is a chilled, electronic producer from Santa Cruz and he’s linked up with Oakland neo-soul singer and creativeĀ Grace DĀ and spitterĀ Killa-Stryder forĀ ‘Stubborn Dreamer’;Ā a thought-provoking easy-listen which draws elements from a similar LA youth collective;Ā OFWGKTA.

Coming in just under three minutes, in a Noname-like delivery, Grace DĀ offers rhymes about floating minds and hazy smoke over ambient, cloudy production beforeĀ K-SĀ 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.
