Cocaine 80′s – The Pursuit/Ghost Lady (EPs)Music — By Janiece Lincoln on February 23, 2012 at 2:22 am
Cocaine 80’s, made popular by members No I.D. and Common, has been releasing spontaneous EP’s for listeners this past year. Their first, The Pursuit, featured seven tracks which equally captured everyone who listened to it. Common was featured explicitly on “Summer Madness” from the first along with the sound of electrical guitars which hip-hop occasionally had separated away from in the past.
Their second, Ghost Lady, didn’t fall short of expectation either. The drop came in October of 2011 and was posted on their official site posted by Tumblr. Common was featured on their single released, “Six Ft Over,” as well. This track alone caught the attention of new listeners as they waited for more tracks to be released. The same EP featured an up-beat remix of “Not No More,” first released on The Pursuit. That may be one of the best parts about it all. Both EPs showcase an equal amount of up tempo and slower tunes without losing your interest.
The two could not have more seamlessly come together. Both EP’s and surplus track, “Like A Fool,” give life to the blend between R&B and hip-hop. Lyricism, melody and rhythm have all met once again. On top of it all, these talents asked for nothing in return for their tunes except a bit of twitter buzz from listeners. By default, tweets would read, “lift off. i just got REAL high off this – try some, everybody\’s doin it.” If you ask us, the tweet is accurate and the music alone is enough to stir attention and hype on its own. Both EPS, 15 tracks, are still available for download below.
