Bop Alloy (Substantial & Marcus D)
‘Not 4 Show’
The latest single ‘Not 4 Show’ featuring Steph, The Sapphic Songstress from Bop Alloy’s Sophomore LP, ‘Another Day in the Life of…’ draws a line in the sand with posers on one side and Substantial & Marcus D’s feet planted firmly on the other.
Kings without the need for crowns like the son of God!
The drums knock. The melody is chopped to perfection. The flow and rhymes are technically sharp, yet soulful. This isn’t minute made rap, they “do it for real”. This isn’t shock rap, glorified self hate or anything you frown upon one day, then champion the next in the club or on computer. The real. You know, the not-always-explicit-for-the-sake-of-being-explicit real. The struggle of juggling school or parenting with your passion or career while remaining true to your beliefs and the culture that helped raise you. Hip Hop.
