Tri-coastal lyricist Sum presents “Excuses”, the new single from his new album Dragon, Volume 1. Wielding a versatile, virtuosic style developed between his hometown of Chicago and his adopted hometowns of Charlotte, Atlanta, NYC and now Los Angeles, Sum was first introduced to us via his albums The Lil Folk, Lone Wolf, animated hip-hopera The Nobody Hole and his future-funk collective The Milky Way. “Excuses” also features L.A. emcee Malkovich and Chicago singer Airon Azure, and is produced by Needlz, best known for his work with 50 Cent and Bruno Mars. Last year Malkovich and Sum dropped a music video to their song “What I Know” (watch here). “This song is a shout to people who take responsibility for their destiny, no matter how stupid they were in the past,” says Sum about “Excuses”.
