Colby’s pick: Metamorphs – “Stepping Stones” February 7, 2008Posted by rugwu in Colby's picks, Hip-hop, Video.
Colby White brings you the illest shit you never heard.
I tend to favor the more lyrical than the ones who are based on the energy, but there’s something about that piano that finds puts this track back on the playlist time after time. Really, that’s the whole theme of the Metamorphs’ latest album Stepping Stones. The production is solid throughout and hits that Hip-Hop bone on every track. The head never stops nodding (… that’s what she said). As far as the lead single and its video, take the notice of the grafh in the background. When was the last time you walked down the sidewalk and just randomly saw a mural on a wall? Somebody bring back the art. It’s a little cliche to say a group is bringing the music back to the certain period, but it is tempting to put that label on these guys. I just wish “I’m not a monster, I’m a human being!” wasn’t the best line in the song — though it does get stuck in my head.
