For many of us, a sad truth comes up when pursuing our craft: though we might invest many sleepless nights to get better at what we do, we might never catch on and get the attention we deserve from those around us. But instead of dwelling on the negative, some choose to throw caution to the wind when making their impact on the world, a quality that reflects well within their work.
Simply put, there's nobody that wants to succeed more than Divine. After connecting with famed Silicon Valley venture capitalist Ben Horowitz, who is a diehard Hip-Hop head, and garnering support from his network for a Kickstarter campaign, the Brooklyn wordsmith is the true embodiment of practicing what you preach.
If this is your first time rockin' with Divine, "Check It Out" is the perfect gateway track to get you hooked on his sound. Jam packed with ill samples and potent rhymes from the Golden Era emcee, "Check It Out" finds the dexterous lyricist dropping knowledge galore amidst the head nodding production, courtesy of Prov P (Andy Price). Turn this one up to ten, and get set for Divine's full-length debut, 'Ghetto Rhymin', which is set for a November 4th release, and now available for pre-order via iTunes and Fat Beats.
