The Beginning is a bold statement from a rising talent in the world of hip-hop. LC captures the spirit of the philosophical waxings of his heroes (Atmosphere, Action Bronson) and blends them with his own stories of coming of age. Tackling tales of addiction, loss and home, his rhymes are spit over a musical foundation rooted in hip-hop, R&B and jazz. Produced by Circa 94 Beats, Paul Mayo and Ray Curenton, The Beginning shows the influence of the old school, but brings all kinds of new possibilities to the table. The first single, “Crack Raps,” is available to radio now. Watch the accompanying video for the single below, directed by Grammy-nominated director Israel Anthem (Mute Math, Shiny Toy Guns).
