Rising rap group Injury Reserve consisting of rappers Ritchie With a T and Stepa J. Groggs and producer Parker Corey have been quickly making a name for themselves and they continue to evolve and get better with every release.
After dropping their amazing sophomore album Floss last year (which I highly suggest you check out), the trio returns with the announcement of their upcoming project Drive It Like It’s Stolen which is slated to arrive September 29th. To accompany the announcement, they share the first single “North Pole” featuring Austin Feinstein of Slow Hollows along with the video.
“North Pole is the name we gave to our new house after moving to Los Angeles. It came from the location being so far north and on a weirdly Christmas themed street but as we were working on this song, it seemed to take on an interesting juxtaposition between the good tidings that come to mind when you think of the North Pole and the cold isolation of it as real, physical location in the middle of the Arctic.” – Corey Parker
The song finds the trio deviating from the high-energy sound they are known for and taking a more introspective approach, touching on more personal topics as they rap over somber production. Check it out below.
