Hip Hop icon, Craig G, returns with the lead single “Limelight” from his new album, "The Fragile Ego". A rich instrumental backdrop and a soulful entry exclaims “Everybody is afraid to speak the truth”. This sets the track in motion to position in for a revealing lyrical ride. Craig G is an enigmatic story teller, “Limelight” explores, unpacks and reckons with our relationship to our ego. It hones in on false personas and the debilitations of living in a world where attention has become a currency. Each word lands gracefully with tactful precision and delivery. It’s approachable messages are not preachy but self-reflective and effective. Heavy hitting bass lines melodically carry the track with a rejuvenated and modern golden era sound of the jazz influences that are the foundation of hip hop.
