Each Week, DC Music Live features music by local artists
Local rapper DretheGypC has released a new video, “Neva Go Back,” from his Loyal 2a Fault mixtape, which scheduled for a July 4 release.
The indie rapper boasts to listeners, “She had her share of East, South and West coast cats. But once you go D.C., you never go back.” The two women in the video represent DretheGypC’s blend of D.C. go go and hip hop. Though, there’s not much of a go go sound in this particular song. It’s not the first time hip hop or rap has been personified in the female form. But the track samples late soulful crooner Teddy Pendergrass’ “Come On Over to My Place.” So, it’s catchy. Take a listen and see if you agree.
