Supastition – Honest Living (FreEP)

blame it on Shake February 20, 2014

Inspired by his home states’ failing economy, Supastition returns with frequent collaborator Croup to release a new EP. Coming in at eight tracks, Honest Living provides the listener with a first-hand documentation of “the struggle” from one of North Carolina’s best-kept-secrets.

This is a collection of songs dedicated to the working class and loosely inspired by NC’s failing economy. Supastition was inspired to write the EP after NC became the first state to eliminate federal unemployment benefits in 2013. A lot of people, including Supa, felt the effects of it. While he was searching for a job himself, Supastition documented those struggles first hand with the Honest Living EP. Croup is no stranger to Supastition music. They recorded their first official song (“Adrenaline”) on Supastition’s The Deadline. Since then, they’ve been working together and crafting songs. Croup is one of the few producers who didn’t change his sound just to get major placements. As a unit, Supa and Croup both refuse to compromise their sound and only care to appeal to those who dig that vintage sounding hip hop.
