NEW MUSIC: @RealIOctane x @TheAlkaline x @Mavado_Gully – Above Them

Standard

Abovethem

Staying higher than mountains today are I Octane, Alkaline and Mavado. In what a few would call an unlikely combination comes “Above Them“. Produced by DJ Frass Records, we hear the trio speak on elevating themselves, looking back at their struggles, achieving success and laughing at those who try to stop them. Interesting to hear these three on one track, but they make it work over a dope DJ Frass production. Three artists who respect each other’s work, and one track that I believe will be a hot one this year. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

When asked about his inspiration surrounding his music, J-Luga shared, “As an artiste and also an individual I find motivation through the struggles I have faced in my life, the real people in and around my circle, the social commentary, negative and positive aspects of everyday living and last but not least the Creature who extended life to us all daily.”
