Bias Truth – Open Road (Prod. Kam0) [Audio]

Toronto, ONBias Truth recently hit us up to let us know that he’s teamed up with Paris-based producer, Kam0, to put together a collaborative projected titled Mid-Summer Nights B4. And to get us hyped on the project release at the end of the month, the duo released their lead single: “Open Road.”

Bias is one of the most spiritual rappers I’ve encountered. By spiritual, I don’t mean that he’s trying to preach religion, or anything. I mean that he maintains a close connection with a higher power and frequently counts his blessing. It also means that Bias is really introspective. The rhymes he spits are rarely about surface-level things: no poppin’ bottles, no fast cars, no hotel parties. Actually, around one minute into the track, Bias raps the Serenity Prayer (frequently seen in 12-Step programs and the likes): “Grant me serenity/ Accept things that I can’t change/ Courage to change what I can/ Wisdom to embrace the difference.”

And just so you know – Bias has a knack for getting his listeners to self-reflect along with him. So welcome to the “Open Road,” people. Stay cruisin’ and peep the single below.

Now let’s just take a minute to talk about Kam0. Shameless confession: I have a huge soft spot for French hip-hop; particularly French hip-hop production. It’s always so fresh and genre-bending. For this track, Kam0 emphasizes smooth saxaphone sounds laced over top of a beat that resembles a hip-hopped version of everything Phil Collins should have been in the ’90s. It’s easy-listening jazz-tinged rap greatness. Ugh.
