Words by Audrey Esperanza
It’s extremely refreshing to know that the art of true lyricism still exists in the midst of all the shallow music that is currently being put out there. Supastition’s “Honest Living” EP dropped on February 18th, 2014, which was entirely produced by Croup, from Germany, and its’ sound is reminiscent of the conscious hip hop that took charge back in the late 90′s/early 2000′s; incorporating substantial story telling expressed in the most honest way possible. The EP is an ode to the “working class” and loosely inspired by North Carolina’s failing economy. Supastition was inspired to write the EP after North Carolina became the first state to eliminate federal unemployment benefits last year in 2013. While in the pursuit for employment himself, Supastition documented the struggles first hand in every track of the EP and the resurrection of raising awareness is literally brought back to life in this album. Supastition has made appearances on tracks with the likes of KRS-One, Ras Kass, Little Brother, Tajai of Souls of Mischief, The RZA and many more.
The EP is available via the ‘name your price’ option, with no minimum, and comes with an exclusive lyric book, full artwork and promotional flyer.
