Heidi Barton Stink (Feat Guante + See More Perspectives) “Won’t Let Ya Slide”
Our friend Guante says that the new Heidi Barton Stink LP record is “radically political,” and lead single “Won’t Let Ya Slide” seems like a warning shot across the bow of those who aren’t ready to dive into the record head first. The track is a playful, old school beats joint with a fun, loose, “fuck you” kind of vibe, directed towards those who are “too cool” to care. Described in the press release as a “Radical-trans-activist-queer-liberation MC,” Heidi will definitely bring a perspective not seen very often in the hip hop scene with her debut LP A Charming Gut. “Won’t Let Ya Slide” shows the rich beats that See More created and highlights the sharp, witty flow of all the rappers involved. If the opening track is any indication, the record will be as fun as it is insightful, which is a dangerous combination. The LP is described as “A mix of radical politics, funky rhythms and the power of community,” which sounds like a great mix to me and I am looking forward to hearing more from the album. The release show for A Charming Gut is next Friday (May 17th) at Hells Kitchen and will feature Desdamona, Guante and See More Perspective.
