In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming artists S-Wrap, Rashad thaPoet and The Varsity their brand new album titled The Other Side Too.
Nashville spoken word and hip-hop artists Rashad thaPoet Rayford and Saran ‘S-Wrap’ Thompson have teamed up with production team The Varsity to release The Other Side Too, a spoken word poetry album. The Other Side Too is the follow up to their previously-released spoken word album The Other Side, which addressed the hero’s journey to success and thriving in passion, purpose and art. The Other Side Too continues that spirit, providing inspiration for those living and thriving on the other side of their dreams, goals and passions.
The Other Side Too comes on the heels of the GRAMMYs® newly added category and first-ever Award for Best Spoken Word Poetry Album this year, which honors excellence and spoken word albums, specific to the performance of poetry with or without music, a category formerly dominated by audio books.
The Other Side Too includes six tracks with lyric poetry and music, and six stand-alone instrumental tracks. It’s an authentic collection that leads the listener to reflect on how far they’ve come and offers up inspiration for those experiencing success. “Find Your Reason” is a message of hope to inspire others to stay the course when times get tough. “Fools Gold” (feat. Moiba Mustapha) addresses the conflicts that arise when chasing the wrong things and “Forever” reveals a powerful message of resilience with a reminder about the seeds that are planted along the way. “Luxury” features R&B Artist Stephcynie and encourages reveling in the opportunities that lie ahead, while continuing to lift others up. Lead single “New Day” ushers in a poignant reminder that every day is an opportunity for a fresh start.
