Suprises abound in the Slow Motion Soundz camp in the past week. With G-Side parting ways, ST 2 Lettaz wasted no time defining himself as a solo artist by dropping the R.E.B.E.L. EP a week after announcing the split and his intentions to release #G… Growth & Development as a solo full length. Friday he dropped “Trill 2 Da Bone”, which featured a chilling and liberal Bone Thugs sample over production that inspires heavy bow-throwing. If it becomes difficult for ST 2 Lettaz to continue performing “Recognize” without his cohort Clova, he's got “Trill 2 Da Bone” to fill that “wild-out” segment of his live set.
After a politically-charged intro titled “Alabama”, ST launches into a declaration of independence on “We Are The People” over a dance-inspired track that feels glittery at first, but ST's gruff delivery cuts the bright lights with a call to arms. Occupy Wallstreet can keep its bland, misplaced protest music, we'll look to “We Are The People” for a generation X representation of how the government is trying to X us out.
