Yesterday, I noted that I just reviewed rapper Lecrae’s brand-new Gravity. Today, I wanted to link to the two songs I consider fresh to the point of heat-seeking. The first is “Falling Down,” produced by The Watchmen, which includes a Boyce College student named Alex Medina. It’s a staggering beat, gothic and weighty, and Lecrae and his guests tear it apart.
Both “Violence” and “Falling Down” could be, in my judgment, hit songs for mega-rappers like Jay-Z or Kanye West. Yes, I mean that–these tracks are not merely “disc-ready,” but could be mainstream hits.
