STRANGERS – MC LYFE / ASEND
On 04/20 Lyfe and Asend dropped this single and music video from their coming collab EP.
Some vintage and well-executed boom-bap, Lyfe has never lost slight of his musical bread and butter, what the people trust him to deliver and I think he brings out the best in Asend’s production sensibilities as well.
The beat is equal parts beautiful and thoughtful and Lyfe’s lyrics equal parts healed and healing, relatable depictions of Inland Empire stoner life. For me this single is promising and I look forward to the rest of the “Exclusive” EP.
