A distinctive sound; fresh, reawakening, and genuine.
That’s what these cats bring to the hip-hop game. Who are they? They are Ol’ Souls, an American Hip-Hop duo based out of Lancaster, PA. They were founded in the early summer of 2014, by members Raw and Tayo, who later released their debut project titled Soulfrito. They give us a laid back, jazzy vibe, infused with neo-soul and rap, while also paying homage to their Latino roots.
Their melodies are pretty ill, even with the crazy auto-tune-like effect on certain songs and hooks. Unlike most artists, they’re using it right, though and it’s definitely not done in the typical “everybody’s doing it” fashion. It really does sound hella dope. With clear poetic inflection, you can’t miss anything they spit. It is indeed attention grabbing. With their slick rhymes and melodic claviature boom bap, they definitely rep their names hard.
“The Souls” aim to shift the hip-hop culture through music and revive the organics of the hip-hop/rap genre.
Take a listen below; you’ll love it just like we did.
