Hip Hop luminary, Menice, teamed up with fellow-trailblazer, Jamie Ray, to kick 2021 off to a blazing start with their latest high-fire drop ‘Walking Lick’.
With clever meta lyrics, beats which hook you in right from the intro and atmospherically entrancing effects weaving through the 808 snares, Walking Lick is complex hit which doesn’t fail to captivate.
If your high-vibe hip hop playlists are sounding a little lacklustre, Walking Lick and the charismatic energy it delivers will undoubtedly enliven them. But the true value in the track lies within the inspiringly resilient lyricism which disrupts the depressing narratives which we’re sold on a daily basis. Positivity may be hard to find on mainstream media and social media, but you can always count on hip hop to deliver the motivation for positive proactive change.
