NEW MUSIC: Lushlife – Back On My Slang

by Winston "Stone" Ford


I’ve always been amused and impressed by Lushlife’s left-field take on hip-hop. The Philadelphia-based producer/rapper first caught our attention with his stellar LP Cassette City two years ago. As I said in that review, Lush “approaches hip-hop not from the street, but from the lab,” and he creates sounds and textures not heard before even in a saturated hip-hop market.

Enter 2011 and Lushlife is set to drop a new EP of the same title and will feature such supporting features as Das Racist, STS and Dice Raw.
