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.
