It’s been WAY too long since I’ve shared some new Ground Up with y’all, but after the huge success of their first iTunes single Let’s Ride they’re back to dropping free material again. Bij Lincs is on the beat, as per usual; catchy flute, eerie strings, and distant drum workings make for an absolute fire instrumental for Azar and Malakai to spit over. There’s very few rap groups who have what it takes to make it to the next level, but Ground Up has been riding together for the last 12 mixtapes, and their skills have never been sharper. Crisp verses about their devotion, potential, and tribulations back their assertion to place your bet on 17’s. No matter what angle you look at this track from, it’s clear that Ground Up is gaining momentum, and I think it’s safe to say we can expect to hear more from them soon. Follow the crew on twitter, check out their soundcloud, and don’t sleep on these tenured and talented artists.
