El Paso artist collective, Sick.Life, continue showcasing their talents with a series of releases. Fresh up to the plate comes their latest single, “Run It Up” (ft. C.Notes & Miles Angel). Wide-eyed yet assured, the Sick.Life crew create music that reflect a thousand emotions – love, hate, the quotidian struggle, and subsequent jubilation, are encapsulated within their interwoven grooves. The coupling of Sonny Wesson’s guttural malleability and E$ BFNE’s raspy pugilism together with Lavoe’s steady and measured flow within the beat’s swing is a revelation.
It is also a reminder that Sick.Life’s lyrical focus and performance inter-connectivity can be found in abundance, and in tandem with their towering musical genius.
Sick.Life’s fluidity with C.Notes’ rapping and Miles Angel’s melodic hook, is alchemic, an act of kismet that simply glides through the rhythmic pathways of this piano driven soundscape.
The confluence of everyone’s artistic contribution results in some very fine moments during the song. The rhymes weave through each other like strawberries and cream in a blender. And as great as the individual performances are, there’s a greater awe in listening to the collective’s telepathic fluidity.
“Run It Up” (ft. C.Notes & Miles Angel) sounds exactly like what a decent rap record should be in 2017: aware of tradition, but geared towards the future. Every member of Sick.Life is on point, as mentioned before, and Rik’s production work provides just the right backdrop and contrast for the energetic lyrical fire that burns on top of it.
There’s a wide range of ideas and musical approaches here, but they orbit around an anchored collective view which works great for Sick.Life.
Sick.Life accomplishes effortlessly and consistently what few others do today – work as a group. They’re the definition of what makes good hip-hop relatable to all. “Run It Up” (ft. C.Notes & Miles Angel) with its collective performance, is at once chill-inducing and a reminder of how much life each emcee can pack into a couple bars.
