Delivering a cautionary tale of “a man whose personal life affects his integrity on the job,” “Story Goes” is an impactful and timely track from Baltimore rap duo Catch The Fade. “Story Goes” features consuming vocal deliveries and a haunting string-laden beat, alongside a strong lyrical grip that emphasizes a yearning for peace while also exploring the tragedies of a broken system.
The “this is how the story goes,” refrain around 01:20 plays with engaging allure, reminding of Kendrick cira Section.80 in terms of feel. An excellent vocal flow follows, capped by a dialogue that reflects the brutality and complications of law enforcement. “Story Goes” is a gripping success that impresses with its lyrical grasp, consuming beat, and addictive vocal flow.
“Story Goes” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2020’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Hip-Hop.
