Some buzzmaking hip-hop acts inflate listeners’ hopes with a few quality releases, only to run out of ideas and descend into mediocrity. Not Bop Alloy. On the lead single off their forthcoming, Kickstarter-funded full-length, the Baltimore/Seattle-repping duo assure fans, “You can Count On Us.” Don’t believe it? Just listen to Substantial‘s bars, which find him counting up from one to 45 as he contemplates his history in the hip-hop game. Producer Marcus D. crafts a head-noddable guitar-loop beat to back his partner’s exhibition of lyrical dexterity. Steph, The Sapphic Songstress contributes silky backing vocals throughout the cut. For Count on Us and much more, cop Bop Alloy’s Another Day in the Life of… LP when it hits The DJBooth for streaming and digital purchase on Tuesday, April 8.
