We first heard of UK-based hip-hop duo Subculture Sage just over a month ago with “Stories and Tales.” Coming from a scene mostly known for stagnation, they appeared with a sound that was surprisingly¬†fresh. Their new track “1=1=1” is no different. Brooding just as much as “Stories and Tales,” the new track showcases a more laid back approach. The lyrics seem to spill out as some sort of stream of¬†conscious wisdom, with a blunted flow that straddles the lines between rapping and spoken word.
