2Dope To Sleep On: OXYxMORON

blame it on Shake January 23, 2013

Still high off my Niners beating the Falcons, I spent the flight back from Atlanta to Vegas listening to submissions (yes, I actually do this every week). This submission in particular came from a fan of the group, who decided to send info and links on the South Carolina trio OXYxMORON. Back in November, the three released The Woods. A 21-track project chalk full of deeply-rooted Southern style jams. And since it’s been a couple months since we’ve dropped a “stamp of approval” on a new artist/group (the last being Grande Marshall), I enjoyed the project so much I wanted to help shed some light on these talented dudes. Hit the jump to stream/download The Woods.

Tony: This album is my struggle, it’s my hopes and desires to get my family in a better place. This is album is my faith in God

MENT: This album is literally my last hope. I dropped out of school, so all my eggs are in one basket. My dad is unemployed and my mom has a home daycare. They struggle so much, and I HATE watching it, especially since they’re such good people! It had to be as perfect as possible to potentially put me and my family in a better place, so that’s where the raw emotion comes from.

Pedro: For me this album is my journal. I’m not the best speaker so often times in conversation I’m not able to say exactly what I want or express myself how I want to, but with this body of work I was. I’m just starting to fully understand the whole concept of trusting in God ‘cause I’ll admit I worry ‘bout shit more than I should at times. Just as hard as God shows abundant blessings, Satan works just as hard to tear that down and the back and forth battle for your soul can tear you down in the process at times. So for me, this album is me reaffirming my faith and coordinating my inner with my outer… finding oneness.
