Ro Spit & 14KT aka RSXGLD (pronounced “rosegold”) first teased us with their brilliant, vivid visuals for their debut collaborative single “I Believe” last month and ultimately promised us that the full length project will see the light of day shortly. The duo lived up to the expectation, gifted us another solid single “True” alongside fellow Detroit natives Royce Da 5’9” , DJ Assault and JMSN and today they drop the aforementioned LP in its full glory.
The project is brimming with stunning tracks and interesting features including the previously mentioned JMSN, Nickle nine as well as Denaun Porter, Jerreau, Angel & Devil and Ronnie McNeir.
From slappers like “Err’body Know That” to conceptual joints like “Over Your Shoulder (Angel & Devil)” featuring Elzhi, and the Denaun Porter featured, “Give It All,” the success of RSXGLD lies in the fact that KT and Ro are such natural collaborators. It doesn’t hurt that they’re bringing their A-games on here, but it wouldn’t sound this good if both parties weren’t fully committed. Their desire to take the album to another level was clear from the jump, because each explained that it represents firsts for them. As mentioned, Ro is more vulnerable lyrically than ever before on here, while KT is pushing himself to create outside of his comfort zone.
This is all evident on “True,” which is also an incredible display of the album’s depth. On first listen, it’s a pure rapping showcase from Ro Spit and Detroit heavy-hitter Royce Da 5’9”, because they’re spitting like they’re possessed by KT’s layered production. But then you hear it again and begin to understand the personal tales unfolding in their rhymes—and that’s all before KT takes “True” to church in the latter half.
RSXGLD is what happens when two artists willingly push themselves to their creative limits, all while recording the best music of their careers. The 12 track LP is now available on CD, vinyl and digital download via Fat Beats Records.
