New (To Me) Music: @Kodney feat. @OraSlick_Music - "IV Real"

From Artist Rep:

Four in Roman Numerals is “IV”--but “IV Real” by K.O.D. and Ora Slick is really focused on another meaning of IV. The Ehanyes-produced song--over melancholic trap and echoing sirens--is an injection of real, mainlined with sickening accuracy. K.O.D. plays the manic dope dealer--washing down paranoia with brown liquor while his voice cracks between anger and pain. Ora Slick is the foil--providing concise raps with enough slickness to warrant the name. Together, the duo’s hot/cold dynamic allows them to deliver a perfect shot of anxiety ridden trap--capable of soundtracking a banger or that moment when you don’t know who could be knocking on the door.

The track goes, mainly because of the production's "melancholic" trap vibe. It's dark as midnight with the pessimistic optimism of, well, an SOTB track ramped up to 11. When you take those vibes and put them to the tune of "life is crap, but I'm trying to make my just due so I don't off myself," you're given a different type of trap music. Add that into the fact that both artists are comfortable with their style and are able to create some solid flows and bars, and you've got a ready-for-radio track in the making. Check it out below and, as always, let the artists know how you're feeling.
