Starting the year off with some incredibly good news for fans of NYC's indie hip-hop scene, RME have returned with a new EP titled Role Models! The first single off of Role Models is "Kick The Rhyme," a lyrics based song with a smoothed out sound, reminiscent of the Native Tongues era while still being decidedly present day.
I first featured RME here way back in 2010, and have written about their members' solo projects a number of times, as well. I remember seeing the group perform at the old Bowery Poetry Club during the Bondfire days, and although it's a brand new song, listening to "Kick The Rhyme" brings back some good memories.
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.
