You haven’t studied hip hop well enough if you are not familiar with the appropriately titled Living Legends crew. In the late 90s and 2000s they were prevalent in a very prolific way with countless dope releases along the way. Some of the crew members continued to make music and others I am not so sure of…but now we see a re-emergence of the offshoot 3 Melancholy Gypsy’s (Eligh, Murs, and Scarub) and you know unequivocally that the talent remains undiminished.
We are once again graced with the presence of legends!
This video has been out for over a month now, but I am just now getting familiar with the Grand Tapestrycollective (Eligh, Alam Khan, and Salaf Nader), and this song is so artistic and really beautiful. Eligh and the team have created a sound unlike any other and this song is an amazing testament to beautiful molding of genres. At this point, it’s rare to see something different in hip hop. Sure we love the boom-bap…but there’s not too much different going on. This is not just different…it’s dope. The cello…sarangi…tell a much needed story along with Eligh narrating the duality of man. There is a devil on the left…and an angel on the right.
Check the album if you love this song as much as I do! I am making my way through it now.
