Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Lit (Featuring Maxwell Saturday & Buuta)" - King Terry III
Sometimes, you just need a good cruise hip hop track, and that is "Lit" by King Terry III (featuring Maxwell Saturday & Buuta). The beat is chill, but provides a great backdrop to three different vocals, yet thanks to WillamGold's production, it all blends together, and while we get tempo shifts, everything flows together to form a great indie hip hop track.
Give it a listen below (and heads up, the lyrics aren't work friendly)
End of the day: this is just damn good hip hop; the beat is modern, but doesn't feel repetitive, the two verses (each with a completely different feel) combine together perfectly, especially when balanced off by the rolling chorus. Lyrically, "Lit" is way more thoughtful, and well constructed than about 90% of the hip hop you're going to hear kicking around radio, and at the end of the day, that is what I look for: sick beat, and lyrics that say something.
At some point, I'm going to have to stop saying that "I don't talk about indie hip hop that much, as I don't know the scene as well" if I keep sharing it...but...I still stand by the fact that I don't know as much, but I'm getting better(?)...at the very least, I know "LIt" is damn good.
Well, I tried my best (...like I actually have control over anything when it comes to Apple Music), and even though we are missing a couple of tracks, the DSD Playlist - Feb 17 is out now, and it's pretty damn great.
Hope you enjoy it too!
Remember, if you want me to expand where I put these playlists beyond Apple Music, you just need to let me know on Twitter, and I'll see what I can do.
