Just last week, I was sitting at the bar with my whiskey on the rocks, minding my own business, when in walks Quotes. I hadn’t seen him in a minute, but I had never seen him like this. With a confidence like no other, he walked up to the bartender pulled out two revolvers and told him to empty the drawer. Before he had the chance to respond, Je$$e strolls in, bag in hand. He looks at Quotes almost to say, “Let’s go crazy.” As the two left with their loot, struttin’, bouncin’, if you will, I sipped my whiskey and thought to myself, “Hm. Two sides to everyone, I suppose.”
This song played the entire time.
LOL. But for real, Quotes, who you may recognize from Retrospect, just dropped his first solo EP, and it’s real good.
Suburban Kid McFly is a must listen with tracks produced by Je$$e, BrandUn DeShay, and Matt Audio Dope and features from Lloyd Dotdot, Brand New and Def Poet. The EP was recorded mixed and mastered by Darwin at Classick Studios. Clearly a team effort, I think they should all be proud of this seven track wonder.
On Gemineye, Quotes talks about coming from the side of town where the grass is greener and perhaps nods to the judgement or stigma that can come with such a residence. Undeterred by the stigma, Quotes seems to just be doin’ this thing.
