I’m honored today to be writing about an artist from my very own DMV, Wordsmith. His new video single Living Life Check to Check gives a big shout out to the backbone of our nation, the hardworking middle-class, and the visual directed by Govinda Collective aptly shows Word in several middle of the road locations getting all kinds of lyrical. The real draw with Wordsmith isn’t just his quick lyrical flow, but rather his voice. A quality vocal is something you were either born with or you weren’t, and Wordsmith was blessed with an articulate almost-nasaly delivery that lays perfectly over a wide array of production styles, including this number from newcomer Jon Kitto. September 7 marks the release of his upcoming The Blue Collar recital album, so peep this video now and grab the full project through Nu Revolution Entertainment when it drops this fall.
