At this point in 2021, Brockton has truly rivaled the city of Boston as Massachusetts' musical powerhouse. Largely led by the roster over at Van Buren Records, the City of Champions has forged itself into the mind of listeners from all corners of the globe. Premo.Dee is another exceptional artist from this area of the state whose multidimensional creativity has only added upon the sentiments I described above. Today, he taps in with VB's Saint Lyor to gift his fanbase with his most well-executed single to date – "ROBINHOOD".
Resting just under two-and-a-half minutes in length, "ROBINHOOD" becomes centered around survival amidst oppression. While some attempt to cast blame upon those that are simply doing what is necessary for them to survive, Premo reflects on how it's ultimately not their fault, but rather, the fault of the systems that have failed them. Managing to tap into an issue of utmost importance whilst still constructing a song of artistic merit, Premo.Dee puts his capabilities on full-display.
Rounding out this release with a well-polished verse is none other than Saint Lyor. Following a 2021 that has boosted the notoriety surrounding his name, Saint Lyor relays yet another effortless collection of raps that place the cherry at the top of this exemplary single. It's just another day where Brockton remains undefeated.
