Boston’s STL GLD, a newly formed duo made up of veteran emcee Moe Pope and producer The Arcitype, has been dropping heat all summer leading up to the release of their album, My Monday Morning Music. This past week, they blessed us with a new video for “Again” on the same day of the album drop, and of everything they’ve put out this summer, this might be my favorite single yet.
Arcitype’s smooth riding production feels like a riveting journey through the night, and Moe’s slinky, introspective rhymes flow effortlessly from start to finish. The chant-worthy hook is laced with scratches from Rain, and bars like, “Imagination is the highest kite that one could fly, watch me bubble as you hover ’round when I’ve arrived,” stick like glue and help set the record’s mood. The Xander Hayes-produced video is a family affair as STL GLD and frequent collaborators Fran P, Lightfoot, Esh The Monolith, and more, float through various areas of the city with “Do it again, do it again” echoing in the distance.
