After watching the new video from former G-Side member ST 2 Lettaz for recent EP highlight ‘Trill 2 Da Bone’, the lasting impression you’ll be left with is that life as a solo artist suits him down to the ground.

As much as G-Side splitting last year was an end of one era in Slow Motion Soundz’ deep history, the way ST looks and sounds (he’s still one of the best rappers around by a long shot) reassures us that he and in-house production masters the Block Beattaz will continue to fly the SMS flag in 2013.

And with any luck, but most likely just plain hard work and determination, he’ll be spoken of in the same breath as similarly uncompromising and hard-rapping rapper with a heart Freddie Gibbs in the not too distant future.
