Lex Rush hit my line with this one, a feature she did with Jackson Whalan. Since it’s something Lex gave me, I knew I had to check it. But what I got exceeded expectations.
If you’re into mid-90s boombap-esque instrumentation with 2020 sensibilities and timely jabs at the foolishness in the world, perk up your ears to this one. Speaking on everything between tiki torch-wielding alt-righters, Fox News, governmental hypocrisy, and the effects of that on your everyday person, “True Story” slaps. But it does more than make your head nod.
Both Lex and Whalan slice through the smoky instrumental to deliver barbs towards the current state of the Union (puns intended). I’m a sucker for good back-and-forth, call-and-response bars. This one features them in spades to give us two sides of the same coin. Check out the song above and the video below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
