Virghost Breaks Barriers On "Stereotypes"

Posted By on Tue, Jan 7, 2014 at 1:55 PM


Millington-based lyricist Virghost's aggressive delivery and clever wordplay, which he occasionally meshes with spoken word poetry, has placed him among the artists in the forefront of Memphis' hip-hop scene.

The dope emcee's most recent release was Summer In September. One of my favorite songs off the EP is "Stereotypes." Over a smooth beat crafted by KingPin Da Composer, Virghost uses the track to share his thoughts on common stereotypes surrounding race, personal religious beliefs, and sexual preferences.

"All of us have done wrong. All of us have sinned," Virghost said in regard to the song. "Nobody is perfect. We shouldn't judge people. We should worry about ourselves. You don't know what people are going through. You don't know what people have been through. Why they are the way they are."

Check out the track below and be on the lookout for my upcoming interview with Virghost.
