The boys from CRAM have been awfully busy as of late, but it seems they’ve found some time to gift us all with a new single from off their upcoming project. Titled “Lifeline,” the Shrimpnose produced record provides a sparring ground for each artist to flash their own styles. Songs with this many artists usually feel manufactured, but “Lifeline” has a way of feeling organic, this might be a testament to their growing chemistry. Spencer & Nazeem seem with at home laying down bars for days, we’re sure you’ll see this one performed tomorrow at the Triple Rock. Check out “Lifeline” for yourself above and keep an eye out for more from CRAM.
