The team at Komplicated have think that actor/rapper Malcolm "Verbal" Barrett is a big deal, and we've had no problem saying so.
Now Barrett has joined with actor/singer Brandon Scott in a musical collaboration called Sin City. Melding Scott's silky vocals with Barrett's intricate, innovative wordplay, they have a soulful sound that's more nuanced and mature than their relative inexperience in the industry would imply.
In honor of Valentine's Day, they released their new album for free (but if you'd like to support them, it's also available on iTunes).
Sin City has been performing around the Los Angeles area, and are poised to make big noise, so get in on the ground floor so you can be a hipster and say you were into them before the crowds.
