As we enter October, this week we acknowledge New Orleans-based artist and sneaker enthusiast Lyrikill as he returns to the hip hop scene with new single, ‘Throne Killa’. The second single from his upcoming project, ‘The Nostalgia EP,’ is the highly anticipated follow up to mini-movie “Runnin Thru My Mind.”
“This is authentic hip-hop culture,” said Lyrikill. “The sneakers, the style, the rhymes and beats–this all what we live, so displaying it on this level is really natural to me. I got with a few of my friends that love sneakers and hip-hop and we put some pairs on the tables and rocked some songs. Out of this came the video for Throne Killa.”
‘Throne Killa’ is produced by longtime collaborator Prospek, taking it back to era classic punch lines with no hooks. A melodic med-tempo groove is rode with clever one liners and word play throughout the classic.
The EP, hosted by the world renowned Statik Selektah, will be produced entirely by Prospek with a bonus track produced by Statik which will serve as the 3rd single.
