Wordsworth links up with The Last Emperor for the single, Hero, off of the forthcoming album, Our World Today. The album is Wordsworth’s collaboration with producer Sam Brown. This track musically sounds like a blend of 80s electronica and boom bap hip hop. There’s just something unique about the pulsing synth when combine with the sample that’s being used in the chorus. And who better for Wordsworth to team up with with for a track like this other than The Last Emp who is known for his Secret Wars cuts from the early 2000s?
Album dropping August 11th.
This track is tangible truth that the art of story telling is not dead in hip hop. Ren Thomas narrates a pretty intricate detail of a woman who is trying to get out of a bad situation. Some pretty amazing visuals are depicted through Thomas’ bars and I encourage you to check them out. I guess this song is actually circa mid 2014 but I just caught wind of it on the bandcamp site.
This song comes off of Ren Thomas’ project, Who The Fuck Is Ren Thomas?
I have admittedly slept on this project. I feel like I did when I slept on Rasheed Chappell’s album. Stupid. I am going to cop this tonight before I lose any more of your respect. If you are like me, and need to restore credibility, cop Divine Scienze now cuz you know this song is hot.
