GemStones ft. Sarah Green - Skeletons

Posted 8 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Fallen Angels
Album:
The Testimony of GemStones

The opening tune of a familiar soap opera is the perfect lead-in for GemStones’s appropriately-titled Skeletons, a lyrical look at the parts of our lives that we may all be hiding.  On the new record, the Chi-Town emcee pulls a few bones out of a few closets, discussing self-medication with drugs, the sale of one’s body for a chance to buy the freshest kicks, and the self-hatred that results from this behavior.  Producer Fallen Angels provides a melodic beat and fellow Chi-Town representative Sarah Green (see Lupe Fiasco‘s Intruder Alert) adds a chillingly soulful hook.  Although there are some that lead completely honest lives, GemStones is calling out the rest of the nation on the metaphorical graveyards in their closets.  GemStones’s new mixtape, The Testimony of GemStones, is due out on June 7.
