“The best music is elevator music.” I’m not sure where R?§H?Ð got that sample, but I think anonymous British woman might be on to something; while not adhering to the typical Muzak template, the unsigned emcee/singer/producer’s work never fails to elevate my mental state and lift my spirits. The Ohio representative’s latest single, Be True, is no exception to the rule. Coming on the heels of Booth-approved video single The Return, this cut finds R?§H?Ð continuing in a similarly meditative, inspirational vein. Over his own production, a majestic arrangement centered around a chopped and looped soul sample, the artist delivers verses packed with gnomic pearls of wisdom: “Harness all the energy inside you / Know that ancient spirit walks beside you / As I remind myself let me remind you.” Fellow Buckeye State representative PA Flex echoes the headliner’s lofty sentiments on the guest tip. Has R?§H?Ð‘s latest aural epiphany left you hungry for more? Seek and ye shall find on his MUSEUM LP, scheduled for release May 21, via LRG Clothing. In the meantime, listeners can click here to peep the inaugural installment of his Road to Museum video series.
