http://konquestnow.com/release/gold-frame-verseborn/
@VerseBorn ignites an esoteric thunderstorm on the new track “Gold Frame”. While rooting himself as a premier figure in the world of underground music, #VerseBorn continues to drop cryptic gems that take listeners on an auditory journey to another dimension. “Gold Frame” touches on a myriad of topics that fit collectively within the human experience, divulging the internal struggles between cognitive thinking and abiding by the street code.

“Gold Frame”, produced by Eneme, is a miraculous marriage between conscious wisdom and street knowledge, officiated by VerseBorn’s adept vocal prowess. The instrumental kicks heavy with a smooth trap/trip-hop feel, adding a soul-crushing blues sample in the breakdown section that will knock your socks off. The slower tempo provides the perfect aura for VerseBorn’s cleverly crafted cadence to consume.

Listen to “Gold Frame” by VerseBorn and submerge into the intellectual realm where the masses utilize the minds we were given.

KonQuest (VerseBorn x Wreck The Rebel)ft. Smooth Da Truth – “Elite”

http://konquestnow.com/release/elite-konquest-ft-smooth-da-truth/

Listen as 3 of the undergrounds most “Elite” emcees craft a marvelous masterpiece with the latest release from the KonQuest Now collective. The hardest working group in hip-hop continues to drop classics as they pave their own path with creativity and a refreshing presence the scene has been yearning for.

“Elite”, another original production from Wreck The Rebel, is a thoroughly melodic track featuring an amazingly catchy hook provided once again by the illustrious Smooth Da Truth. This track cements him in my eyes as one of underground hip-hop’s premiere hook-makers. His voice is so unique to hip-hop that there isn’t anybody who has been able to find the same magic he captures between rapping and singing.

When it comes to “Elite” vocalists, VerseBorn is definitely top-shelf. You can hear it in his raps – each bar is carefully written, each song thoughtfully constructed, listening to him is no different than watching a mathematician solve an equation. While Wreck The Rebel raps at a steadfast speed, showing off with a remarkable sense of wordplay that he doesn’t sacrifice depth for the sake of being clever. He excels with a vivid depiction of events or experiences in his songs, filled with rich empathy and detail that gives the listener a clear understanding of what’s on his mind.

“Elite” proves to be equal parts infectious and well-crafted, qualities that many artists’ making similar music lack.
