Southern Folk offer first taste of Folk Tales

Posted By on Tue, Feb 1, 2011 at 11:10 AM

Up-and-coming Southern hip-hop duo Southern Folk released videos for two new songs over the last week, "Like Crack" and "When I Grow." Both songs will appear on the group's forthcoming debut full-length, Folk Tales, which is being produced mostly by John Hays for Haze Production, and should be dropping around March/April.

After spending some time with their MoneyMayd mixtape, one of the more interesting things I've noticed about Mr. Quiji and Kev da Key's songs is that they create pimps, hustlers, drug dealers, scholars and various other characters, and tell stories from their perspectives. There really is an interesting mashup of booming Southern production and social consciousness channeled through method acting.

Both songs are solid, but I'm still kind of partial to "Point At Em" and "Hot 38" from the mixtape. Check those out.
