“Remember when Hip-Hop fans actually wrote down the words to their favorite songs and memorized them. Today, it’s hard to find MCs who make you think, and critics are quick to condemn Southern rappers as the worst offenders of all. Enter Field Mob and their third album, Light Poles and Pine Trees. The pioneers of the country boy movement waste no time delivering lyrics destined to switch up the game. Respect ‘em because you can’t check ‘em. Painting vivid pictures powered by their colorful, down-home perspective, Field Mob’s rhymes stand out.”—Geffen Records
