LifeTroop – Namaste (Prod. Kurt Kanuck) [Audio]

Montreal, QC – The LifeTroop crew recently re-released their track “Namaste” as they gear up to launch some new music later on this year.

“Namaste” has some serious good vibes. It kind of feels like LifeTroop has put hip-hop up on a podium as a divine entity, or something. Which is cool. Because hip-hop is bond, and all that good stuff. Check these lyrics: “Do this sh*t for free/That’s passion/’Cause you got it in your soul/Or you don’t.” Check it below.

Although the song is entitled “Namaste,” don’t think that it’s some kitschy Enya-hip-hop-equivalent, or something. It’s got turned-up verses, and some ridiculously fast flow. That, and LifeTroop still manages to fit some relatively crass lyrics on to the track. Hopefully they remember to say “Namaste” before (and after) engaging in the fornication they rap about on this joint.

And get this: the crew makes all original music. They don’t do any remixes or covers. Props to that. Looks like there are some pretty solid benefits to having –not one, not two, but– three producers in the crew. Kurt Kanuck cranked out one sick soulful beat on this.
