Sean Armstrong - Listen to the Message

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Dischoe
Album:
Truth Be Told

Some artists require us to read between the lines and discover the deeper meaning of their tracks for ourselves. Booth newcomer Sean Armstrong, on the other hand, prefers to get straight to the point; a member of 9th Wonder‘s True School crew (as DJ Face), the Washington, D.C. native delivers his thesis statement in the opening bars of new mixtape leak Listen to the Message: “You can’t rely on nobody else but yourself.” Despite the ruggedly individualistic theme, this cut isn’t all work and no play; Dischoe‘s swung, soul-sampled boardwork is precisely tuned to get heads nodding, and Armstrong comes with allusive, wordplay-laced bars to match: “I’m Kinda Like a Big Deal like the Clipse be / I keep it real, and I Russell like I’m Nipsey.” Like what you’re hearing? You’ll be able to find plenty more hot beats and rhymes from Dischoe and Sean Armstrong on their Truth Be Told mixtape, set to drop on the 27th.
