The arc behind this track is wild. First and foremost, it’s one of the smoothest pockets I have ever gotten to rap over. LOUPO is a monster, and has been a monster for quite some time. He got his start here in Vermont as a spooky talented standout producer who emerged just as Burlington’s beat scene was starting to pop. He has since moved to Arizona, but only grown into more of a monster out there, teaching himself piano and evolving into even more musical, layered, jazzy beats. His faith and support has been a help to me through some bleak times, too.
So coming full circle on a track like this, as I’m coming back into full-time rapping, is a lightning bolt.
