Co$$ - Time Is Now

Posted 6 years ago
Being Cool Doesn't Pay the Bills

If you’re a born procrastinator, raise your hand… tomorrow. I am, but I’ve managed to get my act together (mostly). First-time featuree Co$$ (aka Cashus King), on the other hand, is all about immediate action; on the latest leak off South Floridian producer Numonics’ forthcoming street album, he announces that the Time Is Now for us to evolve and begin working towards socioeconomic justice – both directly and, as in Co$$’ case, through the power of the pen. The Los Angeles rapper delivers plenty of insight on the lyrical tip, recounting how “crime killed [his] innocence” during his inner-city childhood, and emphasizing just how determined he is to change his world for the better. Numonics (who, on an unrelated note, is currently suffering from the flu – feel better, man!) backs the emcee’s earnest rhymes with a soulfully energetic sampled beat sure to have listeners nodding along. Those who like what they’re hearing can find TIN, as well as previous features from Sene (Departure Time) and Dre Biggity (On the Comedown) on Numonics’ Being Cool Doesn’t Pay The Bills mixtape, set to hit the ‘net “soon.”
