Cadence and Dumi RIGHT are Alternate Reality, a hip hop duo intent on
bringing hip hop with substance to the hungry masses.
On their first single “Fast Talk,” Alternate Reality deliver a rapid
fire assault on the current state of American politics. On the heels
of Rod Blagojevic’s attempted ‘auction’ and with George
W. Bush’s disasterous presidency having lowered the bar to previously
unimaginable depths, “Fast Talk” dismantles political double-speak and
shines a light on the corrupt practices that have left so many people
craving change they can believe in. Alternate Reality deliver ill
lyrics over a perfect backdrop provided by Lord Lamont’s (KHz
Production) high-energy track.
You can also peep out a quick youtube clip/slideshow created for this
