Obey The Crooks – Letter To Monroe [Audio]

Calgary, AB – Calgary’s Obey the Crooks duo just dropped new audio for a track entitled “Letter To Monroe.” The track starts off with rapper Monski boasting about the number of women he has following him on Twitter. Apparently OTC vocalist Beach Season does not have as many opposite-gender Twitter followers (which sucks, because Twitter followers are pretty crucial to Internet social status).

Then the track goes into some spaced-out, smooth OTC production, with Monski’s tight-flowing rhymes and Beach Season’s soulful crooning. This is one sweet vibe-out track to kick off the year 2014. Check it out below.

The track makes the pursuit of becoming a “bad bitch” seem really glamorous. For some reason, “ratchet” became a covetable status last year. Which is odd. Because the type of lady that these dudes are versing about sounds like the type of woman that most ladies aspire to be: a classy little sassy-pants.

And if you’re on the lookout to expand your musical horizons, OTC’s Beach Season just dropped a solo EP entitled Internet Evening. It’s not hip-hop, by any means. But I gave it a listen and I felt feelings. So if you’re into that sort of thing, give it a listen over here.
