Von Pea - "Good Life" (Download) + Album Release 

Pea's Gotta Have It Drops Today Along With New Single

With Von Pea's debut solo record, Pea's Gotta Have It, dropping today and the Audible Treats CMJ Showcase with legendary fellow New Yorker Black Sheep on Thursday, it's easy to see that Von's living the "Good Life," which is also his appropriately named newest single.

With a soulful beat reminiscient of J. Dilla, this chorusless banger rides upon a catchy vintage sample that croons "Don't give up the good life." The Tanya Morgan emcee showcases his skillful delivery and lets his personality shine through on the whole track. Some of the lyrics come directly from the writings of the rapper's high school journal and include sentiments that have taken on a different tone as time has passed. "The track is based on the idea that I'd be 'the man' by 22 and get the girls I wanted at the time (I decided to keep the real names of the girls from back then)," says Von. "These aspirations seem so silly looking back at them and knowing how serious I was." Even if Von Pea's priorities have changed, it's safe to say that this same seriousness has carried over, only to musicianship.
