Seattle rapper The Good Sin had a worthy showing in 2014 with the release of his third full-length album entitled Life Before. We called it one of the ten best Seattle hip-hop albums of the year for its great attention to soulful detail and emotionally insightful lyrics. Life Before felt, appropriately, lived in.
That characteristic has much to do with the MC’s ethos of quality over quantity — an increasingly rare creative approach to music these days — and a willingness to open himself up to experiences outside of the norm, both physically (he relocated from Seattle to New York City in late 2013) and internally (the album was meant to be illustrative of the MC’s emotional growth over the years).
