There have been a plethora of New York anthems written over the years. Everyone from Frank Sinatra to Jay-Z has penned an ode to the city. G.T.P. is the latest act to write about the city that never sleeps, but unlike most of the previous songs about NYC they’ve done so with a flair for the real. When listening to “Where I’m From” it’s obvious that the members of G.T.P. have spent their entire lives in the city and know its streets like the back of their hands. The song makes “Empire State of Mind” sound like it was written by a tourist. It even has the sound and feel of the city. It’s the perfect New York song.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
