Ran into the homie Lipset last night! It’s so nice to be working with good people. Anyway, here is a personal favorite off Lipset’s Level Heads LP which dropped back in November. Lip is for the people, recall he is releasing the album track-by-track for free. Below Lip has some background behind this specific track.
“Misled” is a song that was never meant to be, but has come to be the favorite song on the Level Heads LP to many. The beat was masterfully crafted by Lokes in such a way that it jumps from key to key, has different breakdowns in tempo, and purposefully misleads the listener to keep you engaged. Lyrically, it’s about breaking molds, tip-toeing the boundaries that we all conform to and challenge in order to stay fresh, hip, relevant and ahead of the game.
Shouts to Lip! Lyrics after the jump!

We want to portray what life and music represent to people of all aspects, by making music that speaks from the heart. It’s not just college rap, its more than that. We don’t really see ourselves in a lane, or genre right now. – TDL
