MP3: Dustin Prestige - "Rise"

The Song:

If you've been paying attention recently, you may have noticed things can get pretty tough, frustrating even, for an up-and-coming artist – and especially for an artist who's style isn't exactly the sound du jour for the city from which he hails. Dustin Prestige understands all these things, but rather than bitch and moan, the Mo. City, Texas spitter has embraced his differences, and no where is this more apparent than on his new project, The Kelly and Jessie EP, or it's latest single, "Rise."

"People in hip-hop always act like the ascension to notoriety isn't a constant struggle," explains Prestige when discussing the inspiration behind the new single. "It seems simplistic material is promoted, often at the expense of others, and it's the 'new' MC's that find themselves having to 'rise' about that." And for a single titled "Rise," the song kicks off, and runs through, with a strong dose of emphatic, aided not only by Dustin's mix of singing to go along with his boisterous raps, but also Chris Rockaway's driving production. Rockaway, who produces throughout The Kelly and James EP, brings a rolling guitar lick and percussion heavy drums for Dustin, who asks on the hook, "Must I fail before y'all feel me?/ Must I vanish before y'all see me?/ Will I always be waiting in the wing... Or will I rise?"
