Official digital release date July 12th!!!
Featuring the lyrical performance of Heet Mob affiliate Jay Lee, “Gift of Gab” provides a rolling sound scape for Lee to spin his verbal wizardry. Jay Lee spits a continuous verse for nearly the entire song- truly showcasing his personal “Gift of Gab” through rhymes that weave a constantly morphing tapestry of thought.
“…I place words in places that you cannot find without being a mastermind of
my word matrix…” – Jay Lee.
“The Love” featuring heavy-hitter Reach (“Pen Pusha Mixtape”, also
promoted by Wilshire District) is a ballad to Hip Hop and life in general- an upbeat slice of boom-bappery that commands heads to nod and minds to open. The song is a clear anthem to the reason why the Hymnlayas make music in the first place- for the Love. Reach’s dynamic flow rides the beat as only a master of their craft can- efforlessly and in full compliment to the track.
“It grows, right? It fades away. Sometimes it cuts you deeper than a razor blade…” -Reach
“Gift of Gab” and “The Love” are truly representative of the Hymnlayas’ sound- heavy, melodic and complex- complete with DJ Hylanda’s turntablism making it evident that the
Hymnlayas are definitely present in the studio and at the controls.
“Lift your Hands Hy” is scheduled to be released in full by promoted by Wilshire District and LA Hill Records- look for it here on Itunes and many other digital release platforms
