A-God the Old Soul

A-God the Old Soul is back with another well-crafted hip hop album, this time teaming up with producer Skinny Bonez Tha Godfatha for ‘Labor & Tribute‘. If deep, profound story-telling and high quality lyrical complexity is your kind of thing, then this 8 track joint is going to rocket up your playlist and stay firmly in the rotation.

Skinny Bonez on the boards is a delightful sound. His ability to craft tracks with depth of feeling, makes him one of the undergrounds best and underrated producers. He provides intricate yet accessible production which stands alone as an avenue for entertainment, but also serves as a superbly strong footing for the poignant lyrical flow of A-God, who has stepped it up a notch even with his stellar offering ‘The Honest Pour’ with Whiskeyman still fresh in our audio palate.

Labor & Tribute‘ is 8 tracks of nothing but melodic, moving, mature hip hop. There are elements of funk, soul and just dusty, hip hop bangers. A-God is proving himself as one of the undergrounds best street narrators, and with his smoky, husky delivery, his flow commands your headphones and doesn’t let up. Lyrically, he takes the listener on a range of journeys with authentic, melodic and profound bars penned with purpose, while Skinny Bonez’ production intertwines these tales seamlessly.

This album (and The Honest Pour) are Raw Side certified. If you have an appreciation for the craft, then ‘Labor & Tribute‘ is a must-listen.
