There’s a reason why Black Thought of The Legendary Roots, one of the best lyricists of all time by the way, keeps Sugar Tongue Slim in his inner circle. As a Philly local and Atlanta native, STS has the best of both worlds as far as what he offers as an MC: consistent bars, dazzling wordplay, and a southern bravado.
Each of those qualities are in full effect on his latest project, GOLDRush III, the third installment of the series. STS and DJ Bear One stick to the formula here, by taking and flipping notable songs from the likes of The Heavy, Purity Ring, Kavinsky, Walk The Duck and Gary Clark Jr into completely new records. It may sound confusing, but it works. Trust us.
STS provides an intimate experience on the 14-track mixtape, as listeners can expect to hear one feature from crooner Tony Williams. Get acquainted with some quality tunes below.
