ST 2 Lettaz – Good Day in the Ghetto EP

New solo EP from ST 2 Lettaz of G-Side fame. Produced entirely by The Block Beattaz, of course, but the sound here is harder than on their previous space age exploits. There’s a feature from Clova (so it’s technically a G-Side song), a surprising cross-generational collab with The Migos and Hunstville legend Big Pope, and a nice cameo from another old HSV favorite Mic Strange. All in all good stuff. Read ST’s own description of the project below.
 

“I literally tried to format it like a TV series. This is season one and it’s mostly an introduction to the main character Crooked Letter. He is basically my whole crew I hustled with rolled into one person. All the stories, the personality traits, even his moral compass, it all derived from real people and real events. It’s 30 minutes long and even ends with a cliff hanger. To me, it’s a chance for the listener to let go of real life for a minute and live through my eyes and see what a good day in my ghetto consists of…and in some cases, it ain’t all good. The tape starts out with a nightmare.”

 
Released via Mishka

Nice little loosie here. Note Clova’s rapidly developing production acumen (keep in mind he did ’16 Shots’ too)

Almost a year’s worth of impossibly high expectations has been met and exceeded. Simply put, this is a great album. You need to hear it.

You can stream the whole thing below, and underneath that you can find some bonuses: a song that didn’t make the album, a video for Relaxin’, plus a few rambling subjective thoughts about the album from yours truly.

G-Side – The One… Cohesive Album Commercial #3 + Best 2010 Tracks

1.1.11 #3 from Lawrence and Clark on Vimeo.

Final (and best yet) commercial before the rapidly approaching and highly anticipated 1.1.11 release date. If you missed the previous two commercials you can see them on Lawrence and Clark’s vimeo page here.

As a refresher, I put together a brief collection of my favorite G-Side songs released in 2010. I purposefully left off all remixes, ST and Clova solos and group guest appearances – the 6 songs included are (imo) the pure distillation of what the group had to offer this year as a representation of their unique aesthetic. THESE are why I’m looking forward to their next album.

Included are:
G-Side – Dreamz
G-Side – Impossible ft Geographer & Jhi Ali
G-Side – Money In The Sky ft Chris Lee
G-Side – Back 2 Tha Future
G-Side – #ImSorry (only a tagged mixtape version was released, #ImSorry)
G-Side – Relaxin ft GMane
