Coming off their latest release of “Highs and Lows,” PRhyme decided to take it old school by giving us a single appropriately titled “Golden Era.” The OG duo linked up with young rap star Joey Bada$$ who closes out the track.
The golden era of recording, took place in 1968 to 1973, is a time when hard sound was raw and unrefined. This is where you could find the seeds of hip hop.
As one half of PRhyme, DJ Premier embodies the golden era with all of his work put in throughout the years and his creative direction. The second half of PRhyme, Royce da 5’9″, is also another vet in the rap game who brings a classic flow to everything he touches. Having Joey on the track is really a big nod to him as an artist. His album B4DA$$ sounded like it was straight from the golden era, and at the young age of 20 he is getting the respect of hip hop greats. Royce and Joey flow effortlessly over the insane Premier beat, dropping heavy bars, taking everyone back to that classic hip hop sound.
These rappers are soft / they take L’s, embarrassing /
Doing light-skin nigga shit / so they pale in comparison
“Golden Era” is set to be a part of PRhymes re-release deluxe edition album set to drop this Friday, December 11th, on iTunes. Check out “Golden Era” below and let us know what you think in the comments.
