Even though it’s clear Lou From Paradise is solidified, and lyrically as sharp as he was nearly three years ago at the height of his Painkiller Paradise album arc, “Crash Dummy” feels like a warning shot for what the MC has in store for the remainder of 2021.
In hindsight, though, this year has been an extremely productive one for Lou, and began off the strength of his contribution to the film soundtrack of keynote Wu-Tang Clan member RZA — who released his gritty crime thriller Cut Throat City last year.Lou From Paradise has also increased his lyrical reps tenfold this year, providing a noteworthy appearance on New Jersey rapper Ransom’s Heavy Is The Head album, along with joining forces with veteran producer Statik Selektah for his Not Dead Yet! EP earlier this year.
In an exclusive Instagram live interview with DROPSMEDIA last week, Lou discussed working with RZA on the film soundtrack last year and how that lead to an upcoming feature with Method Man and more.
