West Philly’s Lou Anthony is a busy man. He’s a popular Hip-hop recording artist and producer who has been making music since 2012. With streaming numbers in the hundreds of thousands, and a monthly listener count on Spotify of over 32K, his original tracks have found a worldwide audience. As if that were not enough, Lou is also a successful entrepreneur. He is the chairman and CEO of The Ludlow Sounds and The Ludlow Authorships.
Musically, Anthony has been on a roll since last year when he released the video of his single “Minds & Hours.” So far that track has received over 69,000 plays on YouTube. In 2020 he is following up that success with two new singles; “Homegirl” and “Classy.” On the latter, Lou is joined by Sacramento rapper GDaPlug.
“Classy” starts with a smooth R&B intro before the track drops to a low and slow beat. Lou Anthony and GDaPlug trade verses over a groove that is a little bit Trap and a little bit old school. Some funky West Coast 90s-style synths add a cool lowrider gangster vibe. Each rapper has his own brand of laid back flow. They are definitely comfortable with one another, easily passing rhymes back and forth. They’re having a good time rapping about ladies, some classy and some not-so-much.
The single is a precursor to Lou Anthony’s upcoming mainstream album debut. “S.E.L.F: Something Everyone Looks For,” is a project three years in the making. It will be available worldwide in the Fall of 2020. Check out “Classy” on the Deep Indie Beat playlist. Follow the links below to connect with this exciting young artist, and get ready for S.E.L.F.
