New Music: Pearl - Always Something Else

Pearl is a new female emcee worth checking out. Her new visual for Always Something Else is a classy little flick, shot with help from Matt Grimes. This video achieves it's goal of drawing you ever so slyly into The House Of Pearl. Over a funky beat produced by The Beat Arkitekz, Pearl tells the story of a personal relationship gone completely wrong, after many setbacks. Somewhere in the middle of the song, the author finds independence and self respect, and the strength to move on.

Social themes like this are missing but needed in today's music. Lyrics like "You ain't never gonna stop until I make you stop" and "It's not up to you, it's up to me...I gotta be the one to see" are clues that the rapper may be speaking from personal experience. Pearl is a white woman with sex appeal, but, doesn't seem to rely too heavily on these selling points, instead putting her artistry first.
You can find more Pearl on facebook or on her website.
