Brought to you by Lyricist Lounge and AP | Audio Pictures, Ryan Perfect aims to take a stand against the rampant glamorization of drugs in Hip Hop. He has created a concept “tape” addressing the self-destructive alchohol and drug habits. Timing couldn’t be better with the recent tragic death of singer songwriter Amy Whinehouse bringing drug and alchohol abuse, denial and self-destruction to the forefront of the media this week.
WITH ALL THE RECENT NEWS ABOUT TROUBLED CELEBS/SOULS DESTROYING THEMSELVES THROUGH DRUGS & ALCOHOL, IT SEEMS AS IF WHAT MAKES THEM â€œILLâ€ ALSO MAKES THEM ILL. IN LIGHT OF THIS, I PUT TOGETHER THIS CONCEPT TAPE DEDICATED TO THIS DESTRUCTIVE PATH AND THE VICES THAT LEAD SO MANY ASTRAY. THE TAPE IS TITLED â€œFOLLOW THE DRUGZâ€ AND IS HOSTED BY TONY TOUCH. CHECK OUT THE FIRST LEAK, â€œTHAT LOUD,â€ PRODUCED BY DJ GREEN LANTERN.
Co-signed by Lyricist Lounge and Tony Touch, plus produced by DJ GREEN LANTERN, Ryan sings/raps his lyrics (no autotune). He can spit and I applaud his decision to use his lyrics to talk about something important to him, not what the current trends dictate.
