Leeds local Dialect uses Hip-Hop statement sample, “For the Love of Money”, to show the UK his aspirational flow.
Originally from the O’Jays “For the Love of Money”, the sample has been used most recognisably by Bone Thugs & Harmony back in the 90’s. Showing his musical knowledge, Dialect uses the noticeable sample to show how his grind has changed.
A man on a journey, Dialect looks at the world around him, “man they do you sutin bad with the toolie and the shank/and it’s all for the love of money.” He details the dangers of money blinding you, showing a journey from a road life obsessed with P’s and those around him doing next movements to get it. With this track, a sequel to “P’s On My Mind”, Dialect is spitting about his change of mind state.
With visuals following Dialect around the Leeds Canal, Briggate, and the rest of his hometown, the vibes are intimately Northern. Dialect delivers another solid track to support the already popping scene North of the M25.
