lojii & Swarvy - Due Rent (LP)
Due Rent is a collaborative double album by solo artists lojii & Swarvy.
Written & recorded in the summer of 2016 in L.A. by the two Philadelphian transplants, lojii says “this tape is a score to being a broke nxgga in AmeriKKKa (emphasis on the KKK) – full of dreams and hustlin’ to make ‘em happen, but dealing with the everyday pressures of making ends meet. A.K.A trying to pay rent.”
“The 22 tracks, many of which barely break the two-minute mark, make for a vast voyage through remarkable contemporary hip-hop. The grooves and beats that skip and flutter are smooth and mellow, with nods to the old-school but entirely void of nostalgia. This is a sophisticated, thoughtful, and inventive modern hip-hop record that understands anger doesn’t have to be loud.” - Daniel Dylan Wray, Bandcamp (Best 100 Albums Of 2017)
