Still fresh off the release of his debut solo effort, VonPea is releasing the latest single from Pea’s Gotta Have It. The single, “New Pair,” features Von’s female partners-in-rhyme Josie Stingray and Rapsody, and keeping in line with the high school-theme of the concept album, Josie assumes the character of the woman Vonmentions at the end of his verse, while Rapsody takes on the role of a student at the school.
While Von isn’t the first rapper to write an ode to sneakers, like all things Tanya Morgan, this song approaches the subject in a new and exciting way. “It’s a song inspired by the female sneakerheads in the world. There are a bunch of songs about kicks, but not enough by women, so I wanted to provide a soundscape and invite two of my peoples to fill the void,” says Von, who also produced the track. “To all the women that hear ‘Red Bottoms’ and think about the Bred Jordan 11′s instead of Louboutins, this is for you.”
