|Bay-Area super group Hieroglyphics are back in a big way, releasing a new song “Reputation” in conjunction with a series of paintings inspired by the group from When Art Imitates Life (W.A.I.L.) – Hiero served as the guiding creative force behind the Hieroglyphics Legacy and Monument Series
paintings. From music to art to clothing collaborations, and more, the legendary Hiero crew has certainly earned quite a “Reputation,” and the aptly named song celebrates the Hiero legacy. This no-frills track is all about the flow; synthy guitar riffs and bare bones beats leave the listener free to focus on the killer verses – these seasoned veterans need no embellishment. “Sorry that we kept you waiting… sort of like a test of patience/had to come up with the best arrangement,” A-Plus tells fans, who definitely won’t hold the group’s absence against them with a new track out and their upcoming West Coast tour to look forward to.
