Lux & Longley have been tearing up the local hip-hop scene for a few years now. A dynamic duo that also performs individually, they have taken the stage at locally curated events like Buckfest and performed ahead of national artists, including Playboi Carti, Pouya, Father and Smokepurpp.
Last winter, they released a joint album called In Loving Memory of Innocence. Despite the chilly release date, their second track, “All Tha Time” carries heavy summer vibes, and is backed by a slow, drum-guided beat produced by Lux.
This week marks the release of their first music video to go along with the breezy track. In it, the duo causes a disturbance by driving a bright yellow lawn mower through their neighborhood streets.
Longley opens up the song with his hauntingly deep voice, which is unique but comparable to A$AP Ferg, Biggie or Earl Sweatshirt. He raps lines like,”This life is psycho, you never know just when you might go/So I’m living fast, smoking gas while I drive slow.”
Throughout the rest of the track, that feeling of contentment is celebrated, both through smiles and a kiddie pool swimming sesh in the video and upbeat lyrics in the song. Lux’s sing-rap style melts with Longley’s as they combine forces in the chorus. Together, the young artists spread positivity through lines about feeling good about the direction they’re headed in, even if their end goal is still uncertain.
