The Russ Liquid Test – Land of the Free (Feat. Mr Lif)
Russ Liquid recently switched gears and unveiled his new project The Russ Liquid Test by debuting its first original, “Honesty,” on GRiZ‘s All Good Records. The revamped group, led by Russell Scott and Andrew Block, provided a quick turnaround for their next piece, laying down a funky production for MC Mr. Lif.
Entitled “Land of the Free,” Lif’s verses carry significant gravity, as they discuss the current political and social realities of the United States — which should be no surprise to those familiar with the legendary rapper’s career with the Boston-based group The Perfectionists. Utilizing a shuffling backbeat with rising synths to provide the bedrock for Lif’s verses, the track also features some incredibly tasty guitar and solos in between, highlighting the group’s ability to seamlessly merge live instruments with electronics.
