Locksmith - Fleming Street

Posted 3 years ago
Mike TopNoch & Locksmith

If you happen to think hip-hop is dead, I implore you to check out Locksmith’s latest feature. Cuts like Fleming Street are worth more than 10 cookie-cutter, factory-made records. Released along with an equally powerful set of visuals directed by The Young Gunz of BLK Bloc, Fleming Street finds Locksmith telling the story of his cousin who was murdered. Over a poignant, piano-centered beat by Mike TopNoch and Lock himself, the Cali emcee wrestles with the death of his family member. Exhibiting an aggressive yet pained flow, he does a masterful job of conveying the indescribable feelings that come with the loss of a loved one. If Fleming Street doesn’t get you to check out his free, DJBooth-hosted The Green Box project, I don’t know what will.
