For our April/May episode of our Inner Views series Life Behind Bars, we took a trip up the coast to the Bay Area to touch base with refined Richmond rhymer Locksmith. Having furthered his career to new lengths these past years with an array of potent & individually prolific poetic pieces with The Green Box, A Thousand Cuts, and his most recent project, Lofty Goals, he continues to excel to new heights after nearly fifteen years in the game. We sit down and discuss what it was like growing up in “The Rich” as a biracial child, attending UC Berkeley, battle rapping vs. making records and much more. Tune in for an in depth look into one of the most renown, yet seemingly unsung lyricist hip-hop has been fortunate to have.
Phase 3 on his OG shit forreal! This round he rockin with Anthony King to create…”Puffin OG” Expect this record to flow right into summer…perfect timing.
This is fa sho a banger fa both coasts!!!
