Chicago-based duo LOWERLIPDRIP share their latest single ‘Flawless’, with a second track ‘Scandalous’ also dropping today as part of their 2pack project V. ‘Flawless’ is accompanied by the official video directed by Gabriella Plotkin and Derek Matar. Both tracks are available to buy and stream now via b4 / Remote Control Records.
On the lead track ‘Flawless’, the duo are rejecting the rigidity of society’s expectations of masculinity while hitching every line to their unique hip-hop production. “This is a concise statement on the duality of man and the power of self-affirmation. We want our fans to be empowered by how they look instead of burdened so that they don’t look to material objects and false ideals for validation,” the duo state. “Being yourself is always the most fashionable choice.” The track is accompanied by the official video.
Chicago duo LOWERLIPDRIP’s – AKA BlackrobeBLACKROBES and Dew Haydn – powerful, experimental productions and smooth, insightful flows immediately caught the attention of Pitchfork, Fader, and Lyrical Lemonade upon their debut 2pack in 2019. After growing up together and coming into young adulthood, LLD expand their sound and advocate for rebellion on their two-track single. The two, who identity as gender-fluid (they/them), have been highly active in Chicago’s activism and LGBTQ scenes, establishing a devout following through their tasteful but politically charged lyrics and jarring production.
