Most artists are doing their best to be the Michael Phelps or Usain Bolt of the rap game. You know, loaded down with so much gold they can barely stand. Enter Ced Hughes with For The Gold, a DJBooth world premiere that dares to ask the question, “what’s wrong with going for the gold?” Produced by CalRipkin out of Bad News, VA, For The Gold is a smooth and melodious effort to which Ced lends his golden rhymes, even taking a stab at harmonizing on a chorus that we can sing along to. Looking for more from the duo? You’re in luck. Ced and CalRipken have teamed up on Ced’s Forever Never album, due out in late October and available for download via The DJBooth. So will you settle for silver, or make the attempt For The Gold?
