Vursatyl and Lunden Benard team up with producer Nottz Raw for “Hard On The Boulevard,” a bumping yet topical piece reflecting on real-life issues like police brutality, racism, black disenfranchisement, and more.
With slick bars and creative flows, Vursatyl and Lunden give listeners a look into the way that they see the many shades of gray in today’s black & white society. Listing some of the various ways that being black in America can be an exercise in survival, the two emcees take on a deadly serious topic with a tongue-in-cheek touch that makes the song feel more high-spirited than harrowing.
The production by Nottz has a funky, staccato bounce to it that manages to provide an uprocking backdrop to the rhymes while also managing to shine in its own light.
With witty rhymes and the right kind of beat backing it, “Hard On The Boulevard” is a great way to keep your spirits up in a time when it seems like the world is falling apart around you.
