Sean Falyon wasn’t kidding when he named his recent mixtape Be Everywhere; it seems like every time I turn around I’m hearing a new track from the epically bearded heavyweight emcee. In addition to a DJBooth freestyle and the aforementioned omnipresent project, Falyon also put in work on Mr. Peter Parker’s The Grind Season mixtape, work that today comes in the form of Fighting to S.O.S. (Dear Philadelphia). Produced by The Weathermen, who drop an organ heavy, revolutionarily grinding beat, S.O.S. is a narrative track featuring Falyon bringing us to the streets of his native Philadelphia, a city that’s been besieged by even more violence than usual: “It’s like we dyin just to make it, we learn to live numb to the pain, another soul without a home, names cover the graves.” The subject matter’s serious, and so it’s only right that Falyon’s rhymes are seriously dope. As Dead Prez once said, sometimes it’s bigger than hip-hop, and this is one of those times. Both Be Everywhere and The Grind Season are available now – act accordingly.
