MP3: 4th Pyramid - "Simmy Auto"


MP3: 4th Pyramid - "Simmy Auto"

Earlier this month, 4th Pyramid released his new album, The Pyramid Scheme, his first since signing his label, Silk Ivory, to a joint venture with Lyrics to Go/Universal Music. Along with the album release, Pyramid also unleashed his latest video for "Can't Stop," an official single from The Pyramid Scheme. And now, as a thank you to fans that have supported the album, Pyramid is releasing a bonus song, one that doesn't show up on the original album, for free.

The song, "Simmy Auto," is produced by Simahlak, whose production should be described as nothing less than full-body. The hard-hitting, bass-heavy track is driven forward by a gritty guitar line and sets the tone for 4th Pyramid, who matches the beat step-for-step with a bouncy flow and swift wordplay. "At the time, I had taken a little break from recording in the studio so I wanted to really show that I could still deliver some super lyrical shit," explains Pyramid. "Even the title of the song is a play on words, switching the usual Semi-Auto to incorporate Simahlak's nickname, 'Simmy.'"

4th Pyramid has worked with Simahlak on several other tracks and projects, and has developed a respect for the man's work ethic. "I remember having to do an insane amount of takes before we settled on this version," recalls Pyramid. "When you work with a guy like Simahlak, it's like being in the dojo; he holds you to the highest of standards."

TUGE continues his surge of record leaks, this time jumping on arguably the hardest record out, Future's "Same Damn Time". Tagging his verse on to the MMG remix, the NY rapper demonstrates witty wordplay, in combination with the aggressive flow that has become his staple weapon. "Son a nigga in his crib, wheres the day care sign?/I'm looking for the type of Roc that Dame can't find/ So i can push it like a Lebron James Hairline"

Hey everyone,

Last year's Kickstarter campaign was amazing. I'm doing another (much smaller) one this year.

I've wanted to put out my "Greatest Hits" on vinyl for awhile, so I started another campaign. If you pre-order it, you will also get a copy of my upcoming "Edgar Allan Poe EP" for free. There are some other cool incentives too, be sure to check them out if you're interested in either project.

Thanks guys! Hope to see you on tour soon.

Much love your DIY rap homie,

MC Lars
