Above, we’ve got the latest visuals from Pittsburgh’s own Ev Malone. This one reminds me a bit of Mac because it’s lyrical as hell while still being a bit laidback in its approach. You can also tell that Ev has a love for hip-hop, down to the choice of instrumental and lyricism. It’s not poppy or overly commercialized rap fast food for you to eat and forget about. No, “New Heights” is that from the soul, stick-to-your-ribs hip-hop. When he hit my line, he mentioned that this was his first single. It feels and sounds like he’s been doing this for a while, with his confidence and lyrical ability.
Don’t just take my word for it. Check out the visuals above and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
