When the Getting Gets Good
The name of the group is Lu...Rreals
That's with three periods and two, count em, TWO R's one of which is capitalised (of course).
Besides having an absurdly odd name this quick-tounged duo also possesses an equally eccentric pair of flows.
"GotGetGood" has a beautiful beat and it swirls and dances like a ballroom full of twirling formal-wear. It has a jazzy, well-dressed smoothness that is completely infectious.
I haven't been able to stop listening to it since I received it last week.
My music-journalist type reference: It sounds like if Camp-Lo was played by Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. in a Hollywood remake of Uptown Saturday Night.
Check it out:
:also one of the MC's is an albino which I wasn't even gonna mention cause I feel it's like, a non-issue now, since cats like Brother Ali and Krondon already paved the way for pigmentless rappers.
But then I mentioned it anyway.
