Getting bored with today’s pop-music landscape? Starting to feel like you’ve heard it all? Well, up-and-coming crew Rich Kid Sound System have a message for you: “You Get What You Give.” In return for your attention and A Little Bit of Time (to quote the title of their first feature), the South Floridian five-piece will deliver all the dope music your ears can handle – starting with this brand new EP single. Group member Leo “Deadbeat” De La O mans the boards, crafting an infectiously upbeat electro-pop backdrop for his cohorts’ rhymes. Lyrically, the crew ooze confidence, positioning themselves as beacons of originality and quality in a business dominated by trend-followers: “I’ma put my best up in it, push myself, testin’ limits / Most these acts tend to mimic, movie stars with a rented image…” Do these freshmen have what it takes to make it to the top without sacrificing their artistic vision? You tell me, Booth readers – or, suspend judgment till you’ve heard what else they have to offer on No Cheers for Pioneers, which currently lacks a solid release date.
