Back with the fourth and final pre-album track before the release of his SWTBRDS debut, The Day The Turf Stood Still (March 9th), DaVinci aka J. DaVinci swiftly delivers another strong offering, "Hustler's Theme," to hold us over until he begins releasing the first songs and videos from his album in the coming weeks. Sticking with a golden formula, DaVinci once again links up with Vancouver producer and frequent collaborator Blunt (Freeway, Edgar Alan Floe, J-Love) who brings his trademark smooth, soulful chops to the track – the perfect contrasting backdrop to DaVinci's raspy vocals and the lyrical landscapes the Bay Area MC effortlessly paints.
Speaking of those landscapes, on "Hustler’s Theme" DaVinci skillfully performs his as-usual impressive balancing act between tough talk and enlightenment, mixing in a heavy dose of street science while the underlying tones of DaVinci's lyrics touch on the importance of education in attaining financial stability. "Whether you hustle or work a job, there are do’s and don’ts that everyone should have as part of their business etiquette," says DaVinci. While avoiding the preachy-ness known to drag down so many songs with a message, DaVinci still manages to deliver a strong message for those that don’t have the best education but still run the streets with dreams of financial comfort. "I wanted to convey to them that they could [still] reach these financial goals if they abide by the rules of 'The Hustler’s Theme'."
DaVinci's The Day The Turf Stood Still will be available for free download March 9th via SWTBRDS Creative Collective.
