Footaction Cypher: Rotimi, Sylvan LaCue, L.A. VanGogh, Taylor Bennett

Can’t go wrong with the classic concept here as Footaction recently dropped their first cypher of up and coming artists, as recorded recently in Austin at SXSW. Not only that, but Chicago is well represented by Rotimi, L.A. VanGogh, and Taylor Bennett with longtime Gowhere fave, and Miami representer, Sylvan LaCue included in the foursome as well.

Rotimi glistens the cypher with a smooth R&B hook/verse before the rappers follow suit with impressive bars in the order listed above. LaCue may draw some sorrowful parallels right from the jump, L.A. VanGogh has my favorite set of references with a clever set of nods to the state of Arizona, and Taylor Bennett has my favorite ending to a verse, fitting for the end of the raps. Rotimi emerges once again to drop his hook and then we’re out. I also need this beat too.

Great stuff from Footaction on four artists you should already know.
