Rad Brown’s New Hip-Hop Single “Pace Myself” is an Eclectic Affair

Featuring Opio from Souls of Mischief & Hieroglyphics

Rad Brown is thrilled to release his energetic new single, “Pace Myself”, now available on all streaming platforms. “Pace Yourself” is the first single off of Brown’s upcoming project Upper Crust Confections, set to release later this year.

The single features Opio (from Souls of Mischief & Hieroglyphics) and Minor Birds. The upbeat and inspiring track touches on what happens when you push yourself too hard, too quickly (as well as the feeling of needing to).

When speaking on the album, Rad Brown said “The title is meant to be a light parody of commercial and gangsta rap, which often prides itself as “coming from the streets,” as if good art or authentic hip-hop HAS to come from there. In the context of art, I thought that the notion of commercial (and wanna be) rappers “keeping it real,” indulging in their own self-projections and violent fantasies, and excusing homophobic and misogynistic lyrics as analogies or secondary tales from the streets sound as ridiculous as the polite manners, extreme privilege, and generational wealth accustomed to by ‘high society. I’m a middle class white guy who grew up in suburbia trying to be an appreciator and sponge of everything around me.”

The eclectic production and playful lyricism give vibes of early ’00s Bay Area rap and artists like Asher Roth.

Ezekiel James Hampton grew up in Vacaville, CA with an eclectic taste in music and a desire to write and perform at an early age. Not satisfied working in only one particular genre, Ezekiel has released projects under different monikers with the launch of Rad Brown being his hip-hop debut.

Are we vibing with Rad Brown’s latest offering “Pace Myself”?
