Vulture St. Tape Gang have ‘1st World Problems Solved’
Australia has been burning up with a fresh new side to hip-hop and RnB, but VULTURE ST. TAPE GANG have just doused it in gasoline in their newest joint, ‘1st World Problems Solved’.
This new track from Vulture St. Tape Gang oozes confidence, and if this doesn’t make you want to put a lil’ swagger in your walk, you’re not playing it loud enough. The track begins with MC HYPEMAN preaching acknowledgment of the fact he’s the best. We all know you certainly cannot say that without backing it up. Not only have they backed up Hypeman’s claims, the Australian RnB/soul scene today belongs to VSTG.
A deep bass sits in the background along some of the tightest drum patterns I’ve heard on a track since ANDERSON PAAK. Hyped up hip-hop beats fluttered over melodically, it’s as if the band is all rooting for you in a dance competition against your inhibitions. The whole band is laying down the platform, and they all want nothing more than for you to groove to their beats.
They’ve managed to do something no one has ever heard but without challenging your ear at all. The mark of true beat geniuses, Vulture St. Tape Gang are breaking boundaries we didn’t even know we had. We haven’t even conceived the idea of putting together music this way, and they have it near perfected.
If you’re not onto these guys yet, you’re in for a treat. If you are then you know exactly what I mean when I say, Vulture St. Tape Gang are creators of real change in the landscape of music in 2017. Start off your year in the right fashion and dive into this groovy new piece from Vulture St. Tape Gang ‘1st World Problems Solved’. Maybe it will open your ear up to the song that will help you solve some of yours in 2017.
