The Air In Between by STEG G
In this new album featuring Govanite rappers Empress, Freestyle Master, Solareye, and CCTV, Steg G's album The Air In Between explores exile, loneliness, economic activity and time and what these mean for survival. Working with the Glasgow Barons and their Artistic Director, Paul MacAlindin, the album aims to break down the invisible barriers that exist in music, culture, community, and class to help validate the artistic, educational, and cultural benefits that hip-hop brings to Scotland as a true unfiltered reflection of our communities, from the people within.
