Stream Pearl Gates’ ‘Diamond Mind’ EP

blame it on JES7 November 28, 2015

Washington Heights-raised emcee Pearl Gates made his official debut alongside collaborators eMC on the The Tonite Show cut “Fly Thoughts” earlier this year.

Early adopters of the witty lyricist’s mind gems may recognize the distinct flow from his 2014 mixtape A Star In A Broken Sky, fully launched grass roots style – a phenomenon that used to be considered “rare” before the advent of social media.

Influenced by like-minded individuals including Big Pun, Nas and Talib Kweli, Pearl Gates has aligned himself not only with Masta Ace, Wordsworth, and Stricklin, but Boldy James, the Heatmakers and more.

Today, take a thorough peak into the Diamond Mind of the Below System Records-signed emcee with the 2Dope premiere of his new EP, which you can stream below.

After giving it a few spins, make sure to support that real boom-bap by purchasing via iTunes, Amazon, UGHH or Below Systems Records. Peace to Deniz.
