KIDD — ‘Royal Lies’ ft. Gemstones aka Gemini & Derek Minor
In Plato’s Republic, Socrates famously argues that rulers can be justified in misleading the populace, provided their untruths contribute to the harmony and stability of society. (As evidenced by recent revelations regarding NSA surveillance, the idea’s really caught on.) 17 year old newcomer KIDD begs to differ—in fact, the Chi-Town (by way of Vegas) emcee’s made it his mission to “tattle on” all the Royal Lies promulgated by the powers that be. This freshly-minted LP single finds the rhymesayer touting his commitment to realness over the dissonant synth/sample boardwork of Skrip (Andy Mineo, Thi’sl) and Supaman (Lecrae, Twista). Former1st & 15th signee Gemstones and Reach Records buzzmaker and Derek Minor (formerly known as PRo) echo the headliner’s sentiments on the guest tip. Murder My Flesh is scheduled to drop Tuesday, September 3, via Infiltrate Music. Click here to pre-order the set on iTunes! Song write up courtesy of Richard Spadine of DJBooth.net.
