New video from one of two recently released Binary Star projects, LIGHTY. Saturn Rings Sad Turn Around is both jazzy and chill but still indefinitely hip-hop, which alas, the whole point. The overall sound of the song inebriates you almost, entrances you, but the scratching and lyricism from One Be Lo bring you back into sharp focus. An emcee, I don’t think you could name three emcees of a higher caliber when it comes to wordplay. One Be Lo is amongst my favorites.
One Be Lo showcases why he has been an elite emcee spanning well over a decade. The way he integrates Bible books with athlete names and assortment of other recognizable entities is just damn amazing. People’s pen game simply aren’t as clever as this. There are very few writing on this kind of level. Really brilliant.
I CAN NOT wait for the new Binary Star album, LightY ears Apart to drop. If the songs are just half this dope, it’s going to be all the way remarkable.
