Ok, so typically, anyone over the age of 30 is bound to say “music aint like it used to be” or “artists from the (insert time period they were teens) were so much better” or “You had to really have talent back when…” I’ll admit I’m guilty of it too sometimes. But, as I’ve made it part of my life work to discover and write about new artists that others need to check out, I’ve come to the realization that while we may have more “trash” today, we also have more quality music as well. Simply put, the pool of artist to choose from is much larger than it’s ever been thanks to the internet. There’s no doubt about it, we are in a creative renaissance. To take it a step further, I feel like we are in the golden era of talent which makes finding new, fresh and simply, good artist easier than ever. After you sift through the bullshit of course. I primarily listen to R&B and Hip Hop, and I’d like to consider myself a connoisseur of sorts. In particular, one that takes great pride in discovering and introducing friends and family and my Instagram followers to new music. So much pride that I see it as a skill, and sport that I play better than most. Ok, I understand you aren’t reading to hear me brag so I’ll stop here. Now, on the occasion that I am introduced to an artist from somewhere else, I begrudgingly have to keep it a buck. Some time during the 3rd quarter of 2018, I was watching one of my favorite, now retired, artists Joe Budden on Instagram Live and he was playing some music. As most celebrities do, he was completely ignoring everyone’s question of what song it was. Luckily, no pun intended, I was able to make out enough of the lyrics that I was able to google them. A simple search, and I was able to track down the artist Lucky Daye and his record “Roll Some Mo”. This smooth record about being laid up with your partner, getting high, ad eventually making love is an instant classic sure to make anyone a fan upon initial listen. The lyrics do a great job of painting the picture as one cannot help but imagine being in the company of someone attractive along with a fresh bag from the dispensary. Sounds like a perfect night to me. The combination of the drum pattern used by produce D’Mile, Lucky’s raspy yet, naturally soothing voice, and expert songwriting all bring this song to life.
