Life & Depth

Rap - Hip Hop

This Madison-based hip hop group’s last EP, “Configurations,” was an adventurous journey into glitchy, electronica-based beats and intelligent, philosophical rhymes. Emcee Jer 1’s precise flow and impressive mic presence really separated the groups from a lot of other underground hip hop. “Life and Depth” is another five song EP. While similar to “Configurations” in its sound, it also showcases the group’s growth and a few new elements. Most noticeable is emcee PegLegGreg’s presence. While staying in the background on the first EP, PegLeg takes center-stage this time around, sharing mic duties with Jer 1. The two compliment each other beautifully; PegLeg has a focused, straightforward flow and deeper voice that contrasts well with Jer 1’s fiery, agile rhymes. This EP is also more melodic, with PegLeg singing some hooks and bridges. While most rappers probably shouldn’t sing, PegLeg pulls it off nicely, especially on “Undermind” and the title track. The two emcees, along with the amazing producer Dave “Tracksmith” Olson, are also an incredible live act starting to make a name for themselves in Madison. “Life and Depth” is available now.
