Upcoming rapper Rome Clientel and producer/deejay extraordinaire DJ Concept are truly in their own league in 2014.
Although their group, Dirt Disciples, may be new to the scene, they’ve cultivated a true emcee/DJ relationship reminiscent of some of the most classic duos in Hip Hop’s history. When asked about “I Hear Voices,” the first leak from their upcoming self titled mini EP, Rome said that “The song came from imagining my own death and the battle over my soul between heaven and hell and what that would be like.” But Rome doesn’t come across as being holier than thou on the track; in fact, this struggle between good and evil is what makes this track so relatable. We’ve all been tempted to waste our time living foolishly, but Rome’s bars make use reexamine our existence before it’s too late. The three track EP is being released to commemorate Rome’s appearance at A3C on Saturday, October 11th at the Golden Era Music stage, where he will be performing the EP as well as additional new material from Dirt Disciples.
