Listen to the latest track from Boston-based artist Von P called “Up,” some new heat that dropped yesterday in honor of every smoker’s favorite holiday.
The Mykal Riley-produced joint features fellow Boston rapper Gio Dee, and he and Von combine to deliver what I can only describe as a hit. Both deliver very strong verses over the captivating, airy production. Von commands attention right off the bat with his dynamic flow, then the sampled hook floats in and takes you to another world. Dee’s verse is equally impressive, particularly his use of adlibs throughout his patiently-delivered bars.
“Up” is undoubtedly a smoker’s anthem, one that can just as easily be bumped at a party as it can be vibed out to solo. Listen and download below. Look out for more heat coming out of Boston.
