New single from DJ Criminal is blessed with a range of great lyrical content delivered in a calm and confident manner as ever from the legend Slug (of Atmosphere) as well as Blueprint, who spit over a well-crafted beat offering some uplifting and orchestral hip-hop vibes alongside Elysian Fields vocalist Jennifer Charles. Directed by Blueprint himself, the visuals mirror the introspective lyrics of a journey across great obstacles.

Speaking on his collaborators Criminal revealed “I actually first met Slug and Blueprint while in college. After I graduated I interned at Rhymesayers for a bit, solidifying my relationship with both. I fell in love with Jennifer’s vocals (as many other people did) through her work on the Mike Patton & Dan The Automator album Lovage. This is actually her first appearance on a hip-hop track since that album.”

“Mountain Tops” is a new leak from the forthcoming LP The Smuggler’s Candle.
