New Music Video: "Dripping in Gold" - STS

STS, a.k.a. Sugar Tongue Slim, is back with another flip using Flight Facilities' "Crave You" for his track "Dripping in Gold." It also comes with a new music video that uses the City of Light, Paris, France, as its backdrop as well as a kinkily mirrored bedroom. The song is the latest from his upcoming mixtape GOLD RUSH III, and the video was directed by Daniel "Danny Cam" Gallardo.


New Music Video: "Purity Ring" - STS

For STS's latest "Purity Ring" off his upcoming mixtape GOLDRush III, he flips the Canadian duo's song "Fineshrine." Below is a new music video for the track, which was filmed in Berlin and directed by Daniel "Danny Cam" Gallardo.


STS Opening for Cypress Hill at The Troc Nov. 27

There should be quite a battle at The Trocadero tonight when Cypress Hill rolls into the Victorian theatre. However, it won’t be among emcees. I’m guessing the notoriously tough security staff will have their hands full keeping control of the wild 420-friendly crowd. Well, if you plan on getting blunted outside and strolling in just in time for Cypress Hill’s set, I’d suggest that you make it in to catch this evening’s direct support Sugar Tongue Slim (STS). The Philly transplant, by way of Atlanta, has been building plenty of buzz and a following as well as showing off his versatility with his series of mixtapes flipping works of indie and mainstream artists and making the tracks his own. Though you may find him on stage opening sold out shows for notable acts like The Roots and Yelawolf, STS still continues to fly under the radar in his adopted hometown. It might be because you’ll more likely find him on the road making the rest of the world take notice than in the smaller local venues, but don’t sleep on this hidden gem in the hip-hop community. The Trocadero, 1003 Arch St., 9pm, $27, All Ages - Q.D. Tran
