925ve:“Falling [Fall All In]”
Here’s a little underground local hip hop to close out your week – 925ve are a Minneapolis crew consisting of emcees/beatmakers Prizm, Iggz, Tigre Cole, and Brando. “Falling [Fall All In]” features the production of Katrah-Quey and will be featured on his forthcoming I Heart Esperanza EP. The tune itself is a mellow, piano-inflected joint that presents Tigre telling a story of falling in and out of love with a girl who ended up being younger than she let on (whoops). It’s melancholy track that recalls a style that Mos Def perfected in the nineties – intimate, heartfelt rhymes over a slow jazzy score. Tigre and the rest of the 925ve crew may very well be fresh faces to look out for on the TC hip hop scene. You can download this track and a handful more over at the group’s bandcamp page.
