MP3: @Dopethought and Worth - "I Just Want Freedom"

From Heaven Noise Recordings:

MP3: Dopethought and Worth - "I Just Want Freedom"

Although Salt Lake City's Dopethought isn't old enough to legally buy the watered down beer his state forces upon its consumers, the 20 year old emcee has already established himself as a powerful force in Utah's growing hip hop scene.  True to his name, Dopethought is never short on substance; he projects positivity and stoned swag combined with a gritty, street-art aesthetic.  Whether he's holding a mic, sharpie, paint can, or blunt, Dopethought is no stranger to getting "up" in any sense of the word. Also hailing from Salt Lake is Worth - a producer who has been gaining notoriety in his region thanks to his strong work ethic and unique sound.  Worth's beats combine haunting samples and dissonant chords with hard-hitting drums and a timeless style.

Dopethought and Worth have been working together since they met and became friends in 2009.  Sharing similar goals and tastes, they strive to make original sounding, quality hip hop that impacts the world for the better.  Their chemistry is evident on "I Just Want Freedom," the first single from their upcoming debut album, We Our Environment.  Worth stretches a moody bass-synth over piano keys and drums while Dopethought gets philosophical.  Please listen and share "I Just Want Freedom" and make sure to download We Our Environment for free (or purchase a limited physical copy) on May 18th, courtesy of Heaven Noise Recordings!

Video: G.U.N.S. - "Off In This" & Mixtape

Sports metaphors have always been prevalent in rap and hip-hop from early on.  Many artists grow up in environments where both music and athletics are synonymous. It’s only right for one of the brightest up-and-coming rap groups, backed by NFL star cornerback Asante Samuel, to title their newest mixtape "Overtime".

Speaking about Goons United by the New School and their upcoming release, the All-Pro cornerback remarked, "The group is stacked with young ambitious talent. They are a bunch of high energy guys who love to make good music,” he continued, "I love the new "Hockey" record, I can't wait for everyone to hear the rest of the project."
