Hip hop newcomer Tommie King provides a swift followup to his praised debut single with his latest track, “Dead Up.” King explores a new sound with dulcet backing vocals, cavernous bass beats, and crafty vocal interplay. “Dead Up” has a laid-back feel that’s just as unrelenting and brimming with life as any, approaching the tempo with stamina and a melodic emphasis. For such a young project, he still manages to lay down the eloquent delivery and polished production of a seasoned artist. This track, along with his first single “Diamonds,” is set for release on Tommie King’s upcoming album Axiom.
