Sam Lachow & Raz - Money
With early October’s Coyotes, Sam Lachow and Raz revealed the first of Five Good Reasons that we shouldn’t be sleeping on them. Today, they present another: Money. No, they’re (unfortunately) not going to reward you for listening in cold, hard cash—but they do have some insights into the paper chase that should cause hip-hop heads to prick up their ears. On this freshly-minted song release, Lachow and Maggie Brown create a smooth, downbeat backdrop for rhymes exploring the lengths to which desperate individuals will go to amass currency and the power that it represents. Complete with a throwback hook featuring samples from a few of the duo’s own records, Money is just one of several persuasive jams to be found on the twosome’s latest EP, available online as of September 17.
