At their core, this is a trio of best friends who began rapping together in high school, growing up shooting the shit over '70s samples and break beats. That youthful magic, paired with some maturity, is summoned across the lyrics and each member’s measured delivery.

“First Baptist,” produced by Alexander Spit, will be featured on Pac Div’s upcoming album of the same title.
