Doing It Right by STS x RJD2
Both with critically acclaimed reputations in hip-hop on their own, the Philadelphia rapper and producer join forces on their self-titled album STSxRJD2.
“Doin it right” is the opening track of the album and it’s here to instantly bring you the positive vibes. Despite his experimenting at some points of his previous work, RJD2 always stayed faithful to representing the good old soulful hip-hop spirit. The vintage sounds of RJD2’s beats make a perfect match for the slam poetry spiced with the south-east Atlanta rapping of the pen master STS. This track will be a treat for your ears, being poetic, melodic and uplifting.
RJD’s production itself makes this a sound that is enjoyable and refreshing, but yet timeless, bringing you back to the 90’s hip-hop atmosphere, while still being able to jump in the basket of modern hip-hop. The funk substance in “Doin it right” easily belongs to a room where you want to spend some time listening to good music by yourself, but also on your party playlist, as equally as in your earphones while you’re getting some work done.
This track’s visuals give away it’s strong and energetic ambience, as the official video includes the duo performing in front of an audience, while they’re backed up by the West Philadelphia Orchestra. The instrumentals from RJD2’s creative pocket and STS’s word game make a great intro track for an album, and bring you a full package of great production and lyricism.
