There’s quite a few things I enjoyed about this “If I Die Young” video from STS. First of all, my palette is bias and can occasionally miss songs half the country already knows by heart. So, for me, this was an applicable introduction the The Band Perry’s single of the same name. Secondly, whether it’s with his impeccable flow or unique vocals, Suga’s tongue is rolling off jewels on a regular basis and the go for broke theme here allows the ATL transplant to showcase his mic skills wholeheartedly. Actually, this reminds me a lot of my personal favorite track from his criminally slept-on Illustrious project, “Here Tonight.” Both are stirring chapters in an artist’s ledger that show he takes nothing for granted and simply appreciates the opportunity to rock a mic for anyone who will listen.
To hear the rest of STS’ open audio book, keep an eye out for the second installment of his GoldRUSH series, which is set to drop this month.
