Richmond rapper Lord Linco has been on a hiatus for a while, going nearly 3 years without dropping a new project. Within that time period Linco has grown both musically and as a person as he’s recently become a father this past summer. Love Hard, Die Young 2 is a strong body of work that shows major improvement on the sounds Linco was experimenting with just a few years ago. The EP doesn’t overstay it’s welcome, only coming in at 5 tracks and a little short of 12 minutes. The 5 tracks display Linco’s vocal range, his variation of styles and his talent for melodies. My personal favorite from the EP “Buyaka!” was teased a little while ago at the beginning of the year and features Linco harmonizing over a smooth, groovy beat produced by longtime collaborator of Linco, Owenob. The two have made some amazing music in the past including “Love 4 Me” and “27.” The EP also features production from Uglyfriend, DJ Dahi, Cardogotwings and Ricci Riera. The whole EP is great and is a must listen, Love Hard Die Young 2 is definitely one of the best projects released so far this year. Check out the outstanding new EP by Linco below:
