While a lot of people were introduced to Locksmith last night at the BET Awards, I’ve been up on homie. He has dropped several really good projects since 2010 and one of the most honest tracks he’s put out comes from 2014’s A Thousand Cuts. “The Hardest Song” speaks for itself, just listen. A brutally honest and compelling song with an equally powerful video. Check it out and get familiar with Richmond, California’s resident emcee.
A Thousand Cuts from Locksmith is available now, everywhere you buy music. You need this album. Take a few minutes to listen to “Willie Lynch” his latest video from the album, then go purchase and support the Richmond, CA native. Repeat these steps as many times as needed to bring back your faith in hip-hop music, if you have lost or questioned it as of late.
California rapper Locksmith dropped his latest album A Thousand Cuts on April 15th and it has certainly made a slap in the Hip-Hop world. “Hardest Song Ever” features Leah Tysse and is an ode to personal reflection and growth. Lock dives in to what one can only imagine is a crazy situation that happened to him as a child. Openly personal, Lock acknowledges not only the situation but the truth about dealing with it still today. This theme shows up through out the album, I highly recommend the album for fans of hip-hop. It features contributions from R.A. The Ruggesd Man, Jarell Perry, Rebecca Nobel, Fallon, Anesha, and Olamide Faison. Production was provided by Nova K, Braden Blair, and Rsonist.
Locksmith says “If my personal story can help any other person that is suffering, then I have truly accomplished something special.”
