There is always a diamond in the ruff. For Burnsville, Minnesota, the multifaceted collective, On Our Own, is precisely that jewel; and summer 2019 may be their defining, shining moment. At least as far as one of their member’s, OOOAndre, latest release can measure; for, “Switch Up” is a modern-trap gem worthy of an imminent crowning. Although the Midwestern crew are well-versed in both R&B and Hip-Hop, “Switch Up” leans ostensibly on their thunderous, trap potential. It is a quintessential banger of today’s sound; fueled by pummeling 808s, invigorating rhythm, and OOOAndre’s unique, yet befitting flow. Obviously, he is the man OOO can go to for a irresistible hit. The way this Gopher State talent maneuvers through the beat simply exudes effortlessness; making “Switch Up” likely a natural phenomenon for ‘Dre. If that is the case, there are tons of records just as potent as this club-ready anthem, hidden within the On Our Own archives, just waiting to be dropped. The moment they are, following the promised success of “Switch Up”, the diamond will no longer be in the ruff. It will be crowning princes as they become kings of the new-age, Hip-Hop scene.
