We’ve been blessed with more quality material from Boston emcees this week with the track “Living Legend” from G. Dot and Born. This track will land on their upcoming project that will features heavy contributions from Boston veteran Edo. G and production from Confidence. “Living Legend” is a tribute to critically acclaimed producer Pete Rock as his younger brother Grap Luva makes an appearance on the track as well as former fellow INI member Rob-O. The song embodies the traditional hard-hitting sound that all of these artists are known for and the result is a well-crafted tribute. The visuals to the track were unveiled recently and they follow along with the sentiments of “Living Legend”. 

From the lyrics to the horn-based backdrop, “Living Legend” is a track Pete Rock must be proud of as the production by Confidence is outstanding. Each emcee features some Pete Rock nostalgia within their verses and that makes the track come together as a whole. It is refreshing to hear a tribute song for an artist still alive (hence the title) and having it come from this Boston-based project is great to see.

The music video features plenty of old Pete Rock footage and is an essential watch to complete the listening experience. You can watch the “Living Legend” visuals below and let us know what you think!
