Kyle Lucas, known as part of the now-disbanded hip-hop/dance group Vonnegutt, has released his first single off of his debut solo LP, Marietta Georgia: The Album. The single, “Veritas,” showcases Lucas’ mixing of pop-punk and hip-hop. When you hear his rhymes paired with vocals from former Dance Gavin Dance vocalist Jonny Craig, what you get is rap fused with a pop-punk sensibility.
Marietta Georgia takes its name from Lucas’ hometown and features guest appearances from William Beckett of The Academy is… as well as Chino XL – again highlighting Lucas’ eclectic style. The album will be released on Sept. 18, the same day that the rapper’s US tour with Jonny Craig kicks off in Dallas. Other Texas stops on the tour include Austin, San Antonio, and El Paso.
