In celebration of the digital release of their new LP,Georgia & Declaime are proud to release a brand new single fromSomeOthaShip, “Heaven Or Hell.” Produced by Georgia Anne Muldrow, the track features Black Milk as well as the legendary Kool G Rap and Long Beach MCLMNO, each personifying one of the many layers between heaven and hell. Mello Music Group founder and owner Michael Tolleexplains, “I wanted to create a track that showed two extreme perspectives – Kool G Rap doing his Gangster/Drug Lord/Pimp thing while Declaime & Georgia did their righteous preacher thing.” He continues, “However, LMNO came with the most positive message out of the bunch. In the middle, Black Milk did his thing to perfection. Thus the ‘Heaven Or Hell’ title.”
The track begins eerily with the chorus as LMNO raps, “It’s a balance of life / Darkness and light / We’re giving choice for you / Choose right.” As the bass-heavy, unsettling background sets in, the resonating lyrics challenge what is supposedly good in the world as Kool G Rap, LMNO, Black Milk, and finally Georgia & Declaime take turns laying out their own take on heaven and hell in its various forms. Georgia defends the honor of a higher power through Africa as she raps, “She hold the world together forever / If she fall, we fall / Subject to complete and total recall.” However, she continues that the world is a corrupt place, “Street soldiers used to have honor / Now they walk around hungry and listless.” Declaime follows Georgia’s powerful lines, and as the two trade lines over Georgia’s dark production – Georgia’s sultry rhymes against Declaime’s unorthodox rhythms – the juxtaposition of the two vocals, both in sound and lyric, drive home the song’s heaven or hell theme.
SomeOthaShip is available at all digital retailers today.
