iNDEED - Heavenly
According to popular culture, the musical entertainment beyond the Pearly Gates consists mainly of angelic choirs and a whole lotta harp. Which sounds nice and all, but where are you supposed to get your fix of dope rhymes? On their latest single, Heavenly, ATL twosome iNDEED give us paradise with a hip-hop twist. The instrumental, which comes courtesy of DJ Burn One and 5PMG, blends the musical elements mentioned above with more modern touches, like arena-ready guitar, an intricate bassline and thumping percussion. Lyrically, partners-in-rhyme Ricky Fontaine and Walt Live blur the line between the sacred and the worldly, paying tribute to a woman whose allurements are so powerful that it’s hard to believe she comes from mortal origins: “She must hang with gods on Mount Olympus.” This divinely-inspired jam is attached to a forthcoming LP, the title and drop date of which have yet to be announced. In the meantime, why not take a listen to iNDEED’s last (and first) DJBooth feature, January 2012’s Bl4cK T34rS?
