Opio, from the Oakland collective Hieroglyphics, and Free the Robots are set to release a joint project, Sempervirens, in September, and today, we get a new sound from the LP, “Point of View.” The two previously combined on “Let the Bass Go.”
Free the Robots creates an enjoyable, boom-bap soundscape for Opio to party over, allowing him to call out the fakes and show them why he isn’t one. “Look at it from my point of view, this n*gga think he Ice Cube. I’m just chillin’ sippin’ on my brew, foo’! We ain’t trippin’ off you!” Opio preaches over the funky, groove-along-able chorus. He’s been in the game forever, and you can’t bother the dude.
Listen to “Point of View” below.
