MP3: Craig G - Limelight
Hip Hop icon, Craig G, returns with the lead single “Limelight” from his new album, 'The Fragile Ego'. A rich instrumental backdrop and a soulful entry exclaims “Everybody is afraid to speak the truth”.
This sets the track in motion to position in for a revealing lyrical ride. Craig G is an enigmatic story teller, “Limelight” explores, unpacks and reckons with our relationship to our ego.
It hones in on false personas and the debilitations of living in a world where attention has become a currency. Each word lands gracefully with tactful precision and delivery.
It’s approachable messages are not preachy but self-reflective and effective. Heavy hitting bass lines melodically carry the track with a rejuvenated and modern golden era sound of the jazz influences that are the foundation of hip hop.
This is the first single is taken off his forthcoming album, 'The Fragile Ego', which is produced by Fruition Beats of Toronto, Canada.
