Of the many lyricists I’ve met in the central Texas area, few have the combination of charisma, beat selection and lyrical prowess that Gost was blessed with. After several years of live performances, previous releases and a bit of grinding, Gost has put together Vol. 1, a four song collection meant to give new (and old) listeners a glimpse into his world and at the direction things are headed for him. These are songs that remind me of the hip-hop that I was raised on and influenced by… straight-forward, honest, compelling and composed with love and skill. These songs are definitely worth your time, listens, comments and shares, so get on it!
