MEECHY DARKO SHARES GET LIT OR DIE TRYIN’
OFF LONG AWAITED SOLO DEBUT GOTHIC LUXURY OUT AUGUST 26 VIA LOMA VISTA RECORDINGS
TWO INTIMATE SHOWS IN LA AND NY SOLD OUT
Toronto, ON – July 13, 2022 – Having recently announced the release of his debut album, Meechy Darko, one third of Brooklyn’s critically acclaimed hip hop group Flatbush Zombies, shares another powerful new track, Get Lit or Die Tryin’, featuring Meechy’s signature raspy vocals flowing alongside a serpentine beat. The song was co-produced by Dot Da Genius and theycallmeParker. Its accompanying video was directed by Meechy Darko and Ancillary Fund (Megan Thee Stallion, Machine Gun Kelly, Flatbush Zombies). Listen to Get Lit or Die Tryin’ and watch the video here.
Get Lit or Die Tryin’ follows the previously released, Kill Us All (K.U.A.), both found on Meechy’s long awaited debut solo album Gothic Luxury. The album, executive produced by Dot Da Genius and mixed by GRAMMY Award-winning Neal PoguI, will be released on August 26th via Loma Vista Recordings. Pre-save / pre-add Gothic Luxury now here. Listen to Kill Us All (K.U.A.) and watch the video here.
For Meechy, stepping out of his comfort zone to create this extremely personal debut was a fait accompli decided for him by external forces, after the killing of his father in early 2020 at the hands of the Miami police. Working with Dot Da Genius shook up his usual creative process resulting in an album that includes drawn-out piano intros and laid-back funk melding with dark mini-symphonies. There’s a through line of brutal honesty and catharsis that continues to find Meechy Darko among the rawest and most candid rappers in the game.
Meechy also recently announced two intimate shows in Los Angeles and New York, both now sold out, with more tour dates to be announced soon.
