Hailing from The Redlands of Louisiana and Oklahoma, Earv Legend and Kose are on a mission to establish “a new paradigm in music,” creating a brand of hip-hop that’s “not just heard but felt in the soul.” It sounds like heavy stuff, but don’t let that scare you off—as they demonstrate on their first Booth feature, the up-and-coming twosome’s serious approach to their craft in no way precludes head-bobbing pop appeal. Brimming with soul of the musical variety, newly-leaked cut You Say You Love Me finds the duo addressing a fickle female who can’t decide whether she’s staying or leaving, switching between rapped and sung vocals over their own breakbeat-driven new-old-school boardwork. Packed with propulsive rhymes and catchy melody, this energetic track will be music to the ears of Booth regulars with a taste for genre-bending grooves. If YSYLM‘s got you hooked, you’re sure to find more to your liking on The Redland’s Free Album when it drops in late September.
