I was going through some music we had received from artists who performed at the #CultureUniversityshow during the A3C Festival and Conference recently. I came across a song titled, LOM. At first, I laughed because it seems like everything is some kind of acronym now. But acronyms intrigue me. Therefore, it's a MUST that I find out what the letters mean. So I listened, and quickly found out that LOM is short for Lean On Me.
But we're not talking about a Bill Withers remake here. We're talking about drank 'n drugs (in a fun, light-hearted way, of course).
The beat was immediately familiar and the hook was just as instantly infectious. I liked it so much that I went looking for more. That's when I came across this video of Officialy Made going old school as hell: feeding us fresh flows over the homie's beat... manufactured straight from the lunchroom table. And that's actually their album's name, well Back To Da Cafeteria Table - to be exact. But if this video is any indication of what these guys bring to the "table" (pun intended), then the rap game has a couple of new faces to get excited about. And it should be obvious the city in which they rep.
Currently, Officialy Made has two songs in rotation on ABLRadio.com: LOM (Lean On Me) and Benjamin.
