Little Rock rapper Big Piph follows up his well-received I Am Not Them EP with a new feature on Justin Paul’s single, “Garrett Morgan.”
For those who don’t know, Garrett Morgan was a prominent (and multi-dimensional) Black inventor, born to former slaves. Despite having only a sixth grade education, he invented the traffic signal, amongst other things. He was also a successful entrepreneur, and had quite a few successful ventures.
And now he’s got a damn impressive hip hop song to add to his resume.
As per usual, Piph and Paul are a dynamic duo, and their chemistry merges marvelously to form pure fire on the track, both lyrically and production-wise.
Produced by longtime Big Piph collaborator Justin Paul, “Garrett Morgan,” is the perfect introduction to Big Piph’s innovative new project. The record will be featured on Big Piph’s second upcoming I Am Not Them installment, called I Am Not Them: The Legacy Project, which is slated to drop mid June. The Legacy Project is a first of its kind interactive app-based “live album,” curated by Big Piph. Simply put, it’s a “living album.”
Watch the trailer for The Legacy Project’s “Them” below…and yes, these are something like the “they” that DJ Khaled is always warning you about.
