Louie V. got more heat on his hands.Louie V. Gutta's new project New Legend 2 effortlessly blends the street centered lyricism that is deeply etched in Philly's Hip Hop history with the catchy melodies and hooks that move the new generation. The album features Young Chris and Oschino from the famed Roc-A-Fella Records group "State Property". A group, hand picked by Jay-Z, that in the early 2000's solidified Philly as a go-to city for true to life lyricism. It also features Lil Uzi Vert, Philly's break out star who is nominated for the "Best New Artist" category for the 2018 Grammy Awards.
On the surface that alone would be enough evidence of blending Philly's rich history with its bright future. When listening to New Legend 2, it's Louie's songwriting ability and versatility as an artist that shines brightest. Tracks like "Less Than A God" and "Time Chamber" have enough bars to impress a Hip Hop purist while "Blue Check" and "Boomin" are infectiously melodic and sure to be a hit with the youth. Louie even showcases his storytelling ability with "T.A.N (Trap All Night)" a wildly catchy record about a young lady who doesn't need a man to provide for her.
Gutta has some high confidence in himself (as he should) when it comes to the rap game. New Legend 2 certainly backs up one of his latest sentiments on Twitter:
fuck being the best in da city...I’m convinced I’m one of the best artist in the □ might sound crazy now but soon y’all gone see.Lend your ears to his latest effort below and be sure to spread the NOiZE!
