Studio 52 Featured Band of the Week: STL GLD


Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

Studio 52 Spotlight: STL GLD

What Studio 52 Says: Boston based hip-hop crew STL GLD consist of emcee Moe Pope and producer The Arcitype, and together they have cultivated a sound that blends old school hip-hop flow, modern beats with old school roots, and gritty real life topics. Rapping about everything from fatherhood and relationships to drugs and overdoses while collaborating with a number of artists — some well outside of their genre — listeners are always kept guessing as to what’s coming next. These guys have been a pivotal piece of the Boston hip-hop scene since the early 2000s, predating the creation of STL GLD. Both Pope and Arcitype are Boston Music Award-winning acts on their own, STL GLD itself has been nominated for “Best Hip Hop Act” for the past two years, and they’ll be performing at the 2017 BMAs at The House of Blues on December 7. But hey, why wait a month for one of Boston’s best hip-hop acts? Catch them tonight (November 3) at Oberon in Cambridge with One in the Chamber Orchestra and Cliff Notez, a performance that will show off the sounds of STL GLD like none they have ever played. — Trevor McSweeney, Studio 52.
