The rap crew known around the world as Roll 4 Self have released their new single, “City Lights.” In addition to the talents of Roll 4 Self (Georgia hip-hop artists Big C and Tee) the track features additional skills and performances by Jasmine Rhey and Loose Bills. It has been published proudly on the Roll 4 Self Productions independent music label, entirely without support from the mainstream corporate music industry. With style, rhythm and urban groove deeper and more smooth than anything from the underground rap genre in months, “City Lights” is a single all fans of the scene can get behind.
Roll 4 Self cite as main artistic influences such legends of the mic as Tupac Shakur, Outkast, T.I., and Jay-Z. Elements of each of these are easily noted in “City Lights,” but their own inimitable sound is one that marks them as one of the best contemporary hip-hop bands to come from Georgia. This unmistakable character, joined on “City Lights” by Jasmine Rhey's clarion, crystalline vocals and by the heavy-hitting lines and rhymes of Florida's own rapper, Loose Bills, is not an easy combination to match with anything else.
Roll 4 Self have been performing since the early 2000s. Their official band bio describes their usual subgenres as including street, dance, and smooth hip hop, the latter to which “City Lights” specifically belongs. Roll 4 Self have performed a great many live shows over the years and sold albums both in the United States of America and overseas.
Asked to describe any inherent message their new track might have in store for fans and new listeners, Roll 4 Self write simply, “'City Lights' is smooth hip hop capturing the thoughts of the night life under the city lights with a feature from Florida rapper Loose Bills, along with the angelic vocals of Jasmine Rhey.” They cap off this description: “Just ride and enjoy.”
“City Lights” by Roll 4 Self is available online worldwide beginning 9 August 2014.
