With Song of the Starz II: Dark Night still without a concrete release date (hopefully “coming soon” means… coming soon), Cobe Obeah gives us the green light to premiere the project’s latest single. Produced by StarRo; with additional vocals provided by LV (who wrote/performed the hook on Coolio’s “Gangsta’s Paradise”).
The record is about the ills of materialism, and how it affected this young lady who I met my first time visiting New York. We became good friends. She was obsessed with the Billboard life, magazine hype, shopping, commercialism, etc; to the point where she didn’t even witness the things that were happening around her, such as gentrification. She became victim to what I call “Soho Pimpin.” Many of us become victim to “Soho Pimpin”, shit even me. But my experience with this lady inspired me to write a record about it, towards her and extremely materialistic woman in general. Listen.
