I had heard rumblings earlier this year about a collaboration between STL GLD and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. And then the pandemic happened and it seemed like that would go away like everything else had. But then STL GLD and members of the BSO decided to jump on Zoom and make a remote session. They chose the STL GLD track "With Me," and after hearing it with a live string section I may never be able to listen to the album one ever again. This collaboration is pure perfection. It doesn't take anything away from STL GLD's edge, and this is still pure hip hop, just with strings. Things like this are why I truly love the Boston music scene.
According to the description of this video on YouTube: “'Us: A Celebration of Community' was originally envisioned as a live performance featuring a fluid set of artistic collaborations between STL GLD, members of the BSO, hip-hop and spoken word artists, DJs, video artists, beat-makers and dancers. The goal of the project was to explore the synergy between artists of different genres, in pursuit of a new and inclusive artistic vocabulary."
