Step into the concrete jungle with this track from Apollo Brown and Phillmore Greene. They offer honest lyrics about the ever rising cost of living and poverty. One wrong turn in this concrete jungle and anything can happen, whether you’re careful or not.
In “Steep Life”, Greene hits the nail on the head with these lyrics, which talk about how close to the breadline we all are. The bars come at you with flying realism, while the dark and introspective beat is relaxing yet oddly disturbing. It has a melancholy feel to it and really tugs the heart of the listener. A great find. A wonderful song.
