Steg G (feat Empress)

Another cut from Steg G’s current album ‘Live Today’, this track lets Glasgow’s MC Empress take a scabrous lead vocal, a righteous rant on personal and wider subjects.

“Linguistics like ballistics, causing harm” indeed – she is one hell of a rapper, aiming at various targets with spitting invective – challenging all comers…

A masterclass in self-belief and with some incredible wordplay, Empress is backed by a mid-paced combination of beats and instrumentation from Steg, which is catchy but doesn’t get in the way of letting Empress do her thing.

Impressive (or should that be “Empressive?” – thankyou…), and with the other tracks amounting to a wide-ranging and enjoyable album – BM has ordered her copy!
