After compiling a number of his freestyles into a free, downloadable package earlier this year with the GOLDRush mixtape, Philadelphia-raised indie rapper Sugar Tongue Slim, better known as STS, is prepping the release of GOLDRush II. Following the same blueprint as before, the concept sees the emcee flip popular contemporary tracks into lyrical rap joints, and for the latest in a string of leaks, it’s UK’s own Ed Sheeran and his + bonus track, “Gold Rush” (what an incredible coincidence!) that experience a makeover.
You can get a listen of STS’s rappity rap interpretation below and catch footage of his tour schedule, studio grind and downtime for the accompanying video. GOLDRush II drops July 31st.
