Things change. You change jobs. You change lovers. Lord knows I hope you change drawers. The same thing happens with music. Many times it is a circle where new is old and what was once old is new again. The influx of Motown Soul from a few years back in R&B is proof of that statement. However, when that old and new mashup, something incredible truly inspirational happens with music. With acts such as Kid CuDi, Chance the Rapper—and as an extension Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment (That album is incredible)—Allan Kingdom and of course Kendrick Lamar pushing the envelope to what mainstream hip-hop can be defined as, it’s a great time to be a music fan. The streets are taking notice too. The infusion of elements of funk, jazz, and psychedelic rock are showing up more and more in new artist.
One such artist carving a name for himself in this new progressive niche is Richmond rapper Peter $un. Peter’s mix of these different elements has garnered him a cult following within the city and has him noticed by hip-hop blogs all over, including DJBooth. In the new landscape of Hip-Hop and ever evolving music scene as a whole, $un is going in the right direction and plans to be a powerful voice to the new generation. Hit the play button for a most enjoyable listen to his newest cut with producer Go Yama, Scummy.Ugly.Pure.Beautiful (S.U.P.B). A dreamscape cut that's getting a lot of attention with his trademark off-kilter flavoring that will make for a most enjoyable listen. Take a listen after the jump.
